Kettner joins University of Winnipeg as visiting professor

Former Chief Public Health Officer for Manitoba Dr. Joel Kettner has joined the University of Winnipeg as visiting professor and senior fellow in Indigenous Development Practice in the Master’s in Development Practice Program.

 "Dr. Kettner’s breadth of experience in public health, health care and policymaking and his understanding of how these relate to social and economic development, is an excellent match for our MDP. His knowledge of and work with Canada’s Aboriginal and other disadvantaged populations are an important asset for the program", said U of W president Lloyd Axworthy.
