PHO is getting ready for The Ontario Public Health Convention (TOPHC). TOPHC is the perfect opportunity to meet experts in the field, find potential collaborators, stay up-to-date with the latest public health research and most importantly, to have fun. TOPHC 2017 runs from March 29 to 31, 2017 at the Allstream Centre in Toronto, Ontario.
Global challenges. Local solutions.
This year, TOPHC is taking a global perspective and PHO is ready to join the conversation on global health challenges and how to address them with solutions developed at the local level.
PHO will be well represented at TOPHC; with 26 posters, 20 15-minute presentations, 5 panels, and 5 workshops; covering topics such as: public health systems, food safety, infection control, surveillance systems and child health. Our staff is busy preparing for what is sure to be a great event.
The Sheela Basrur Centre (SBC) recognition ceremony and lecture kicks off TOPHC on March 29 from 9 to 10:30 a.m. – honouring the legacy of the late Dr. Sheela Basrur, Ontario’s former Chief Medical Officer of Health. TOPHC will also feature the SBC educational pathway — a series of presentations and sessions dedicated to leadership and communications.
