For the fifth year in a row, the six National Collaborating Centres for Public Health (NCCs) and the Public Health Physicians of Canada (PHPC) are presenting a series of free, online webinars each focused on a different priority area of public health. Experts from across Canada will lead interactive sessions where public health physicians can learn about current public health issues and develop important skills for their future practice. Once again, we have requested CME study credits from McGill University, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) office, which sponsors continuing medical education for physicians. The McGill University CPD office is fully accredited by the Committee on Accreditation of Canadian Medical Education (CACME).
