International Forum on Public Health Education

The International Forum on Public Health Education took place on November 2 and 3, 2016 at Lister Centre on the University of Alberta campus in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. More than 160 delegates from across Canada, as well as the U.S., Brazil, Australia, South Africa and Viet Nam, met to consider the vital role of programs and schools of public health. 

Through plenaries, poster and oral presentations, and workshops, delegates shared information and ideas about common challenges within public health education and how can we overcome them, innovative teaching methods to provide effective program delivery and well-prepared graduates, and ways in which practice-based and academic institutions can collaborate to prepare public health professionals.


This conference was for public health researchers, professionals, practitioners and educators from academic institutions, governmental and non-governmental agencies, and industry.
