March 10, 2011

Jack Thompson and Bud Nicola took a public health message to a broader audience at the Pacific Northwest Canadian Studies Consortium’s general meeting at UW Libraries on February 25. They discussed the academic role in the upcoming 8th annual cross border workshop and conference, held May 24–26 in Victoria.

They also described the recent Population Health Symposium, a joint production of the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, and the University of Washington.

The two UW faculty members also described how they use cross-border cases in problem-based teaching in the Community-Oriented Public Health Practice master’s degree program.

The Canadian Studies Consortium began about 25 years ago to facilitate the development of Canadian Studies at institutions of higher education in the Pacific Northwest. Its members include 47 universities and colleges on both sides of the border.
