Communications and Engagement

About Us

The objective of the Communications and Engagement department is to enhance the public’s awareness and understanding of Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre’s (TBRHSC) programs, services and facilities and the research happening at Thunder Bay Regional Health Research Institute (TBRHRI).
