Public Health Ontario (PHO)
PHO’s continuing professional development and education activities are aimed at increasing the capacity of those who work in public health and the broader health system. They provide evidenced-informed content expertise and information sharing on a range of public health topics and areas.
Working in partnership with experts across Ontario, their programs consist of collaborative platforms, such as videoconferencing and webinars. Their goal is to encourage and facilitate interaction and to optimize ways to break down the barriers between academic and research information and front-line knowledge and practice.
Regular training and professional development opportunities for professionals within public health and the broader health system can not only educate, but renew passion and interest in public health. PHO is committed to offering real-time educational opportunities that address current and emerging needs of various audiences.
