PHABC is proud to announce our 12th annual public health summer institute, “Fake or Fact? Promoting Digital Health Literacy in an Era of New Media and Misinformation,” happening Thursday June 24th and Friday June 25th, 2021. Once again, we have partnered with Saskatchewan Public Health Association, Public Health Agency of Canada, and Yukon Public Health Community of Practice to host this event across Canada.


As a result of the ongoing pandemic, we will be hosting our summer institute entirely online, so no matter where you are in the country you can join us virtually. Registration is on now via Eventbrite, for only $50 plus taxes you can join us online to explore the population health challenges and opportunities related to the dissemination, diffusion and promotion of health information in the digital age.

As an added bonus, registrants who are located within BC, Saskatchewan or Yukon will receive a complimentary one-year membership to their region’s public health association!


We are excited to have Dr. Lorie Donelle, associate professor at the Arthur Labatt Family School of Nursing at Western University, and Dr. Simon Carroll, adjunct professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Victoria, as scientific program co-chairs for this year’s school on digital health literacy.
