About PHABC’s Summer Institute

Over the last thirteen years, the summer institute has provided excellent opportunities for continuing education and professional development.

The event provides a unique evidence-based program where participants can actively learn, evaluate and test the principles of the curriculum through keynote presentations, best practice examples and case studies, team building exercises, and hands-on activities.

We strive to bring together public health professionals who work directly or indirectly with public health issues across numerous social service sectors and help to foster innovative solutions to the identified issues.
