State of the Science Symposium: Global Health Engagement
The overall objective of this symposium is to provide participants with an overview regarding the impact which global health engagement has on the Department of Defense (DoD), World Health Organization (WHO), and non-government organization (NGO) communities. The course will identify challenges, concerns, and considerations through lessons learned from past GHE efforts. Additionally, there will be a strong focus on aligning, synchronizing and integrating for future research and rehabilitation initiatives.
The content of the sessions will benefit civilians, veterans, and military service members, their families, caregivers, community-based organizations, government agency personnel, students, residents, and healthcare providers who work with and support global health engagement initiatives.
