Join us on October 12th (Noon – 1pm EDT) ) for a special one-hour live webcast celebrating World Standards Day. Hear experts discuss how standards support the provincial immunization system that will enable individuals, health care providers, and public health professionals to have secure, real-time access to the same information – and how this makes cities smarter.
