Why working at PHO is important to me:

"It gives me the opportunity to connect with active researchers, field practitioners, and knowledge exchange staff, every day, working together, in the same organization, to achieve population health goals. This unique environment is a feature of PHO as a knowledge organization, which, I feel adds depth and relevance to my work."
