  1. Discuss the importance of Connecting with Others in public health

  4. Encourage networking, both in this session and throughout Summer Institute

Description

Networking and other ways of connecting with others are of increasing importance in public health. Many questions remain as to the most effective ways to accomplish this: How do I connect others? How do I create and maintain formal networks? What are some examples of the most effective connections? We can answer these questions not only by learning from the experiences of those in the public health field, but also from those in diverse disciplines. Many new ideas will be shared with participants in this interactive discussion forum.
