Even in this time of isolation, there is tremendous need for people to help improve the health of their communities. And, you can make a difference. GPSA is offering you a unique opportunity to participate in an intensive virtual academic course, Global Pandemic eCOURSE & Response.

This 16-part course will focus on understanding the global pandemic and how you can help your community. You’ll have the opportunity to study with some of the world’s experts and enjoy 16 hours of interactive, live online sessions with GPSA staff. Sessions will include information about COVID-19, understanding how epidemiologists investigate outbreaks, review prevention methods used to contain viruses, risk factors associated with severe COVID-19 symptoms and the most recent research developments related to vaccination, detection and screening for COVID-19.

With the support and mentorship of GPSA staff and faculty, you will design your own response to the pandemic: How can you make your community and your neighborhood a better place? Projects can focus on social distance training, personal protective equipment or more traditional topics like proper hand washing. Upon successful completion of the course you will receive a Global Pandemic Response certificate from GPSA.

These are strange times but you can make a difference now!
