WPHA Connection - Virtual Sessions

A series of Virtual Sessions are being offered to WPHA members and non-members to provide time to connect with other public health colleagues across the state.  Sessions are virtual, so no need to schedule travel time.  Each month will provide an opportunity to connect with other WPHA members, ask questions, and share thoughts and ideas. Recordings and relevant resources discussed are available within one week of the Virtual Session.
