What people are saying...

<span>Public Health Ontario</span>
"An amazing workshop that actually discussed the concepts of implementation science (IS) and then allowed us to apply them to a situation that we wanted to impact. At the end of the day, colleagues at my table who were new to IS, were saying 'now it is making sense.' To have the ability to go from gaining knowledge to actually applying it was incredible. Truly, one of the best workshops I have attended!"
