Optimal health for everyone through continuing professional development

About Us

January 2023

We’re welcoming the new year with a slate of brand-new learning activities. Check out the latest about pediatric nutrition, midwifery documentation, youth health and vaccination recommendations for adolescents and adults. 2023 kicks off another busy conference season with several popular events early this year, so make sure to register before you miss your chance. January is also Alzheimer’s Awareness month, a good reminder to hold your spot for the February Care of the Elderly Review Course. The CBT Skills program will begin with the largest group of participants yet – supporting the well-being of physicians from across the province. Happy New Year!
