Upcoming Webinar: IPH launch new digital learning module on Health Impact Assessment

The Institute of Public Health (IPH) is hosting a webinar to launch a new digital learning module, ‘Introduction to Health Impact Assessment’, at 11am on Wednesday, 29 June 2022.

The Institute is delighted to announce the launch of its first digital learning module, which will be made available online and on mobile devices through a new ‘Public Health Matters’ app, developed as a public health learning and communications platform.

This short introductory module to Health Impact Assessment (HIA) will provide an interactive learning experience for anyone interested in understanding HIA and how it might apply to new policies, programmes or projects.
