APRU Global Health Working Group Webinar Series 2022

The APRU Global Health Program’s Working Groups offer a six-session webinar series for free to faculty and students. The main objective of the working groups is to facilitate research collaborations and education around key topics of interest to our members. Each group is chaired/co-chaired by faculty from APRU member universities.

In this webinar series, each of the six sessions in this series will feature several renowned international experts from throughout the APRU network. We will discuss current challenges facing the region and the world, including mental health, cancer prevention and control, humanitarian emergencies, COVID-19 and pandemic prevention. The series also will offer two interactive webinars designed to enhance skills for faculty by examining innovative uses of technology and assessment in the classroom.

These webinars will take place in lieu of an annual conference this year. Participants who attend at least 3 webinars will receive a certificate of participation.
