Call for discussion forums
PENAPH is seeking proposals for discussion sessions at the 2018 Technical Conference. The discussions are intended to provide opportunities for conference participants to better understand the theory and practical applications of participatory epidemiology (PE), to gain new knowledge and insight about PE, and to interact with other PE practitioners from around the world.
If you would like to suggest a discussion topic for the conference organizers to consider, please make a comment on the Second Conference page of the PENAPH website. The suggestion should include a clear question and a short background statement to provide context for the question. If possible it would be helpful to provide 1-2 key learning objectives for the discussion and suggestions for a facilitator who will be able to help frame the discussion.
All facilitators and discussion participants must register for the conference. Final selection of the discussion topics will be done by the Technical Conference Scientific Committee.
