Our dynamic team has years of experience in the areas of program planning and evaluation, healthy public policies and by-laws, health communication, social marketing, knowledge exchange, alcohol policy, and other health promotion topics. We are well linked and have the pulse of health promotion activities throughout the province. Take advantage of this expertise and knowledge and let us assist you in planning, conducting, and evaluating evidence-based interventions that promote health and prevent chronic disease and injury.   

We work with many stakeholders across the province to be leaders in health promotion including our partner resource centres the Ontario Injury Prevention Resource Centre and the Program Training and Consultation Centre
