Professional Development Opportunity: Hybrid, multi-site course on ecosystem approaches to health

Hybrid, multi-site course on ecosystem approaches to health
–May 2018

Are you preoccupied by complex issues influencing the health of ecosystems, communities, humans and/or animals?  
Discover innovative and dynamic approaches for better understanding the multiple factors which influence health – ecosystem approaches to health – with an experienced, pan-Canadian team. During this intensive course, you will learn methods for carrying out research and interventions on issues at the confluence of health, the environment and society.
This part online, part face-to-face graduate level course on ecosystem approaches to health is being offered at three sites in May 2018: Montréal (UQAM), Guelph (University of Guelph), and Prince George (University of Northern British Columbia). Eight 90-minute sessions will be conducted as simultaneous webinars across the three sites and the rest of the time will be locally run sessions, including field trips. We offer a rigorous, hands-on pedagogical approach.
This course is available to graduate students from all disciplines and also to professionals interested in these themes. It is possible to register for the full course for credit at one of the participating universities or to follow the webinars only, on-line (a certificate of completion is provided).
