AFHTO 2019 Conference: how to come for free

July 11, 2019

Let us help you get to the AFHTO 2019 conference. Introducing our referral program!

In the spirit of Ontario Health Teams and the potential for increased collaboration they represent, we’d like you to invite your community and partners to experience the conference for themselves and better understand the work you do.

All non-members have to do is say who recommended them during registration and the organization with the most referrals wins a complimentary registration! Non-members and members alike can win. This offer is good until Friday, August 9, 2019.

The AFHTO 2019 Conference, “Health System Integration Built on the Foundation of Team-Based Primary Health Care”, offers many sessions of interest with topics like:

  • Administrative
  • Health promoters
  • Respiratory therapists
  • Social workers


All IHP session leads get a $50 discount on conference registration. Email us for more information.
