The University of Saskatchewan's International Centre for Northern Governance and Development (ICNGD) has joined with the College of Nursing to offer a three day, international forum that will explore the application of remote learning technology in rural, remote and northern communities. The Remote Presence Forum, which will bring together global leaders in the field of remote learning and clinical application, will host a public session entitled "How can Remote Presence solve our healthcare delivery challenge?".
