This Thursday and Friday we will be convening together online for our 11th annual Public Health Summer Institute, “Think Globally, Act Locally: Public Health and the Anthropocene,” have you registered yet? If not, what are you waiting for? It’s only $60 +GST ($50+GST for students/seniors) for 23 speakers, 25 breakout sessions (live and recorded) and 4 plenary sessions over 2 days! Plus, if you register from BC, the Yukon, Saskatchewan or Manitoba you will receive a complimentary 1-year membership for your region’s public health association! Talk about an awesome deal!



Want to know more about it before you sign up? We have released our draft information package, think piece, speaker biographies, agenda, and plenary and breakout session descriptions on our website to help you decide. To access all of it follow the link below, everything is located under the Summer Institute tab on our main menu.



Trying to choose which breakout sessions to join live and which to check out later? We can help with that! We have launched our YouTube channel where we are adding breakout session introduction videos everyday until the summer institute, check them out by following the link below!



Be sure to join the summer institute live on Friday July 10th, from 1:30-2:30pm PDT where the break out sessions will be divided by participant’s region and your discussions will focus on how to take everything you have learned over the last two days and create change in your local communities! We will also release a post-summer institute resource package to help registrants move from planning to taking action in creating healthy, sustainable, just and local solutions to pressing public, population, and environmental health concerns in their communities.



We can’t wait to welcome you online later this week! Keep an eye on our social media channels for speakers features over the next couple days and be sure to share them with your friends! The summer institute is open to anyone who is interested in the theme, no matter their location!



Keep your eyes out for our call for abstracts for the PHABC annual fall conference, happening this November (likely online this year due to COVID-19). We will be releasing the call soon after the summer institute and encourage members to consider submitting an abstract for consideration. We will be expanding on our theme of public health and the Anthropocene and are excited to see all the excellent abstracts from our dedicated public health and related professionals!
