Public health practice in the 21st century is in a state of significant flux. As such, the theme for this year's conference is "Facing The Future: What's Next For Public Health?"

Its aim is to provide students, professionals, academics, community organizations, and policymakers with a space to come together to critically discuss developments in the field of public health, as well as emerging public health issues. Specifically, it places emphasis on topics such as environmental health, the uprising of gun violence in Canada, the mental health of youth, health system changes, and artificial intelligence.
