Webinars & Podcasts

To improve our ability to disseminate the latest health information, HIP now offers webinars that can be viewed from the convenience of participants’ own computers. These webinars address a wide range of health promotion and preventive medicine issues on a variety of vital topics.

These interactive sessions last about one hour, during which time the speaker presents content and answers questions that have been submitted in advance or during the presentation. Every quarter, HIP offers a number of live, interactive webinars (fee-based) on timely health issues. Links to past webinars are posted below for those who were unable to attend the live webinar and/or for participants who want to access to the presentation again for future reference.
