Many health promoters in Ontario have spent the COVID-19 pandemic reassigned to the pandemic response, away from health promotion work. In light of this, Public Health Ontario (PHO) is hosting a three-part webinar series that aims to re-familiarize health promoters with key concepts in health promotion. The series will also benefit professionals in both public and community health who wish to learn more about health promotion.
In the second session of the series, Andrea Bodkin, Senior Program Specialist at PHO, will introduce PHO’s six step process for planning health promotion programs, and draw the connections between program planning, health equity and sustainability. Following this, Lisa Gallant, Program Specialist at Niagara Region Public Health will provide an example of a program that was planned using PHO’s six step process.
Intended audience: Health promoters working at public health units, community health centres, and NGOs in Ontario. Managers and directors at similar organizations, as well as public health/health promotion students, are a secondary audience.
