Everything our team needed to complete OnCore was provided. We did the online lessons and came together to apply the concepts to our practice through compelling case studies.
Research Assistant, Public Health Ontario
I can’t wait for all of our staff to take OnCore. It’s an affordable way to enable our staff to work together in tackling the challenges and seizing the opportunities that lay ahead of us in public health. Both new and experienced staff need support in embracing new approaches and new concepts. I believe it is an investment towards making a difference to the health of our population.
