June 2020 ASPHER Newsletter
2 Jun 2020

Greetings to all our Members from the ASPHER Secretariat.

Welcome to ASPHER's first monthly newsletter and what a busy month it has been! We seem to have filled as much space during the month of June as we’ve brought to you in the past in our quarterly newsletters.

We are excited that the new monthly format will keep you up to date to give you a better opportunity to engage with ASPHER activities as they are happening and to promote and spread news from your schools.

Over the coming months, in addition to the usual news, we will feature two special items in each newsletter. The first will bring you one of our TIPH Europe Campaign winners so you will have a chance to see what great initiatives they have come up with and perhaps find inspiration from their campaigns for use in your own school context. The first one to be presented here is from Jagiellonian University, Krakow.

The second item will spotlight COVID-19 work from a number of our Members showing the variety of ways SPHs are contributing to the fight against the pandemic. This month we bring you a report from University College, Dublin with their experience setting up and training volunteers for a Contact Tracing Call Centre.

Importantly this month, you will also find information on the ASPHER 2020 Virtual Retreat. The full schedule is available here and we look forward to connecting with you all on Tuesday 2 June from 13:00-16:00 CEST (Brussels time). The event will be live-streaming so pass the information on to your colleagues!

It has been terrific to find so many ways to engage with a young generation of public health professionals over the past months through the TIPH Campaigns and now with a motivated group of young researchers engaged with the ASPHER COVID-19 Task Force. We will be working to keep that momentum going by bringing in young researchers for other projects beyond COVID-19, through the ASPHER 2025 Strategy, and the ASPHER Advance forum!

Very best wishes and good health,

Robert Otok, Lore Leighton, Naomi Nathan
