We are delighted to announce that PHTT is accepting applications for the 2019 iteration of the conference taking place on November 1-2, 2019! This year, our focus will be on the health issues concerning youth populations of differently abled people, or people of determination (POD), in the United Arab Emirates. As a participant, you will be tasked to design a healthcare intervention focused on the triad of social systems that contribute to the health of young PODs: the healthcare provider(s), the family unit, and the education institution.
Join hands with national and international university students for a weekend of skill-based workshops and eye-opening talks from experts in the field.
Learn and rethink what public health means and how it can be effectively navigated in a given context to deliver innovative community-based solutions.
Work with a diverse group of students to devise your own intervention for PODs (including a chance to win the opportunity to implement it in the UAE!)
The application can be accessed here and will remain open until May 05.
No prior experience in the field is required and students from non-health backgrounds are highly encouraged to apply to this multidisciplinary opportunity.
