Interested in learning more about the breadth of issues in global health care? HVO has initiated a series of webinars focused on a variety of issues in global health – from new WHO initiatives, to innovative educational projects spearheaded by volunteers in these challenging times. The sessions run an hour in length, so they can be viewed during a lunch break. However, since we know that people have full schedules these days, we are also recording these sessions and will be posting them on the HVO YouTube channel.
We urge you to come back to this page and follow us on social media to learn more about upcoming webinars and to see what you might have missed.
