Please see the link below that captured the Convening Day at the Global Convening on Health and Equity event held in Barcelona.
It was an excellent event with many interesting speakers and participant interaction.
Don't miss the SOPHIA Monday Social at the American Public Health Association Annual Meeting! Join fellow SOPHIA members and others for a casual gathering Monday evening, November 4th anytime between 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. at Iron Hill Brewery, 1150 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA. This is an informal happy hour that can be used as an opportunity to grab a drink with other SOPHIA members, colleagues, classmates, or old friends while you’re in town for APHA. Everyone will pay their own way. So we have a rough idea of how many people will be joining us, please email SOPHIA Steering Committee member Emily Bever if you are interested in attending.
Please help us in welcoming two new and six returning members to the SOPHIA Steering Committee this term! It is important that such a talented force of HIA practitioners continues to commit their time and expertise to SOPHIA.
