IADPO is committed to supporting its members through unique learning opportunities. As part of this effort, we host members’ only E-learning sessions four times per year.
Session topics are based on needs and interests communicated to us through member surveys. Each session includes a 45-minute presentation with 15-minutes for group discussion. Join us to share your own experiences and bring your questions for the presenter.
Upcoming E-Learning Sessions:
Members will be invited well in advance to help select the date and time for each topic to ensure as many members as possible are able to attend (the time of day and day of the week changes each session).
2019 will kick-off with:
Questionnaire Design—Key to Collecting Useful Survey Data—Presenter: Jennifer Austin, Executive Director, International Alliance of Dermatology Patient Organizations (IADPO), also known as GlobalSkin.
Members will be invited by email to vote for the time and date of this session to be held late January or in early February.
