Registration Is Now Open for FAIMER’s 2020 Global Health Matters Forum: Connecting Healers and Makers

Posted on Categories Global Health MattersTags ,

FAIMER’s annual Global Health Matters forum will take place on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm Eastern Standard Time (UTC – 4) in Philadelphia, PA. The theme of the 2020 forum is Connecting Healers and Makers. Registration is now open  for virtual participation.

This year makers, visual and performing artists, and designers will join health professions educators for a day of rich learning and dialogue. They will be joined virtually by participants from across the globe. By the end of the forum, participants will be able to:

  • Define the processes related to concepts of creativity.
  • Identify skills and education opportunities that health practitioners can gain from the arts.
  • Identify skills and education opportunities that practitioners in the arts can gain from health practitioners.
  • Apply concepts of creativity to innovation and the healing arts.

Online participants will have access to the live streamed session and moderators will incorporate virtual participants’ input into plenary discussions. Having at least one other person participate with you will enhance the experience considerably, and small groups of four to six face-to-face participants are ideal. Virtual groups of global participants will also be formed.
