Policy forums

2023-2024 MPHA "Public Health Matters" Policy Forum Series

Mythbusters: What’s tried and true; what’s new?

We are looking for some friends -- will you be one?

A “Friends of the Forum” $50 sponsorship ensures the continuation of this yearly series. Sponsorship includes your participation in all four of the forums. Your name will be listed as a Friend of the Forum and displayed on the ZOOM screen at the start of each forum and again when the forum closes. 

There are two ways you can sign up to be a Friend of the Forum:

  • Register at the "Friends of the Forum" level for the October 27 Policy Forum Event. Please note that you will only have to register once, as we will automatically register you for the additional 3 forums in the series. 
  • Make a donation and make a note that states "policy forum." We will process it accordingly and automatically register you for all forums at the "Friend of the Forum" level. 

 Thank you for your support!
