STEM Global Public Engagement Training

WGHA invites members to join its inaugural STEM Global Public Engagement Training which is part of its newest program, STEM Global, supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

STEM Global will increase awareness of global health careers, help teachers integrate global health into their STEM teaching, and improve access to career exploration opportunities for youth underrepresented in the sciences.

STEM Global Public Engagement Training, presented by Pacific Science Center, offers a professional development opportunity for scientists and global health practitioners. Gain valuable skills in science communication and engaging the public on March 13, 2019.

 

Audience: Early to mid-career scientists and global health practitioners at WGHA member organizations (Limited to 24 participants).
