After much deliberation, the IPH team has decided that in the best interests of the health and welfare of Indigenous communities during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we will continue to offer the Indigenous Public Health Institute in an online format via Zoom.  The IPH Winter Institute 2022 will offer the next segment of our course Pandemics in Indigenous Communities: Before, During and After Covid-19. The course will focus on what we have learned since February 2021 and planning for “after” Covid-19.
