Webinar: From Partnership to Innovation: the Role of the Academic Health System

October 20, 2018 (Indonesia)

Globalization undeniably affects many aspects of the health sector around the world. Consequently, academic health centers and health systems can play a great role in improving the well-being of people around the globe. Academic health systems should be enabled to interact via an international organization of some sort, which, in turn, would allow academic health centers to collaborate on a global level in order to address health-related issues internationally.
