Review Online Learning Tool and Enter to Win Cash Prizes

Help review our online learning tool for disability advocacy and enter to win one of three cash prizes!

Although conversations around diversity and inclusion have become more prominent, students with disabilities continue to face barriers across all disciplines of higher education including Health and Human Service Programs (HHSP). In 2018, the research-based theatre play, Alone in the Ring, was created to help share the lived experiences of students and clinicians with disabilities in HHSP professions. Currently, the Alone in the Ring team has created a new online learning tool that combines the performance with additional learning resources. We now need students from your program to give us feedback on this tool before its prospective integration within the curriculum next year. The learning experience and surveys should take you no more than one and a half hours to complete. All those who participate in this study and complete both the pre and the post survey, will be eligible to win one of three cash prizes valued $50 each.

Please see attached consent form for more details. If you are interested to participate, use this link to enter the Tapestry and start exploring.


Climate and Health Education Student Fellowship

The Global Consortium on Climate and Health Education (GCCHE) envisions that all health professionals throughout the world – doctors, nurses, and public health leaders and practitioners – will be trained to prevent, reduce, and respond to the health impacts of climate change. To achieve this vision, we created the 1 year intensive Climate and Health Education Student Fellowship – to educate and empower the next generation of health professions students to become global climate and health leaders and communicators in their respective fields and within interdisciplinary collaborations.
