Colloquium on International Education for Health Professions at NAFSA Annual Meeting
Donna Petersen, ScD, MHS, CPH, professor and dean of the USF College of Public Health, is the keynote speaker for the 2014 Colloquium on Internationalizing Education for the Health Professions. Her talk is held in conjunction with the NAFSA (Association of International Educators) Annual Meeting in San Diego, May 25-30.
Dean Petersen will present Framing the Future: The Second 100 Years of Education for Public Health. This initiative outlines the future of public health education with the key consideration that “global health is public health and includes both domestic and international issues, so global health perspectives and content should be covered in all MPH degrees.”
The colloquium is a unique learning opportunity for deans, faculty members, senior international officers, and program directors working to infuse global knowledge, awareness, and cross-cultural competency into coursework and co-curricular activities.
