    As Zika spreads to the U.S., climate change becomes a daily reality, and the presence of antibiotic resistance becomes a threat to human health, the One Health movement has emerged to help us understand how it all fits together. One Health looks at the relationship between human, animal, and ecosystem health and offers the potential for dramatic progress if the health professions work together to address these issues.

    Learn more about the One Health initiative in this webinar recorded on December 1st, 2016.

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Aug 5, 2016 2:02:03 PM

    Richard Skolnik – Author of Global Health 101, Third Edition

    In April 2016, Unite for Sight asked me to facilitate a workshop on teaching global health at its annual Global Health and Innovation Conference. This followed a similar workshop I led in April 2014.

    The aims of the 90-minute workshop were to exchange ideas about:

    • How teachers and students might keep up to date in such a rapidly changing field
    • Some of the key value and content issues in teaching global health
    • How participants might get better access to selected global health “experts”

    Some “Crowdsourcing” on Teaching Global Health

    Posted by Cassie Peterson on Jun 17, 2014 10:22:58 AM

    Richard Skolnik – Author of Global Health 101

    In April 2014, Unite for Sight asked me to facilitate a workshop on teaching global health at its annual Global Health and Innovation Conference.

    The aims of the 90-minute workshop were to exchange ideas about:

    • The learning objectives of introductory courses in global health
    • The content of an introductory course on global health
    • Approaches to teaching global health that encourage student interest and learning

    The workshop attracted about 75 people. Almost everyone in the workshop was involved with teaching global health but a few participants were students of global health or former students of global health.
