The Global Health World Shared Practice Forum is a quarterly forum where global health practitioners gather to view a pre-recorded video lecture and discuss questions interspersed throughout the presentation. These videos are viewed through OP and structured so that other practitioners around the world are also watching and posting their responses to a live discussion board.

 

Join us on May 23, 2019 for the next Global Health World Shared Practice Forum led by Dr. Anne Hansen
