Share Your Public Health Idea for TOPHC 2019


12 Sep 2018

It’s that time of year again!

The ramp up to TOPHC 2019 has officially begun with the call for abstracts. Here’s your chance to share your public health topic and shape the conversation at the upcoming conference. 

From March 27 to 29, 2019, public health professionals from across Ontario will gather to explore how strategy, leadership and practice can align to address changes in the public health sector. 

The learning objectives for TOPHC 2019 are to: 

  • Describe the implementation and impact of evidence-based and evidence-informed strategies, programs and policies to promote and protect the public’s health. 
  • Identify considerations and approaches for enhancing collaboration and partnerships to address current and emerging public health issues.
  • Recognize gaps in and challenges to current public health practice and policy and discuss opportunities and potential solutions to address these gaps.
  • Apply new or enhanced skills to questions and concerns facing public health professionals and our clients. 

The deadline to submit an abstract is Monday, October 22 at 7 p.m

It is a time of transformation within public health, with the new Ontario Public Health Standards, as well as emerging and ongoing health issues that present new opportunities and challenges for today’s public health professionals. Collaboration and information sharing will be instrumental to provide high quality public health service throughout Ontario for years to come.
