July 2020 ASPHER Newsletter
6 Jul 2020

ASPHER Secretariat was very pleased with our 2 June Deans’ & Directors’ Virtual Retreat event. We experienced a few small technical issues, but overall it ran very smoothly. We were thrilled to be able to reach so many of you through this online event and expect to increase our online presence for future in-person Retreats. Most of all we would like to thank all our participants and contributors who made the afternoon such an engaging experience! The 2020 Virtual Retreat continues this week with the Members only ASPHER 2025 Strategy consultation meeting this Thursday 2 July from 13:00-15:00 CEST (Brussels time). 

We will also be coming back after the summer break on Thursday 10 September for the 2020 ASPHER General Assembly. Make sure to save the date and check the Retreat webpage for further updates. With the expectation that the ASPHER 2025 Strategy will be adopted in September, ASPHER is taking part in and consulting with the WHO Europe’s proposed European Programme of Work in order to look for and create synergy with our future directions.

We are pleased to bring you the two programme highlights in this newsletter. The EHESP School of Public Health and their mobilisation efforts to combat COVID-19 and TIPH Europe Campaign highlights from Israeli Schools! Congratulations to these Member Schools and all our Members on your hard work!

The Secretariat has also been very excited by the activation of ASPHER’s in recent weeks. We are especially proud of the young professionals who have stepped up and contributed! It is an inspiration to us and very promising for the 2025 agenda.

Keep the momentum going! Thank you to all and please enjoy the July newsletter.

Very best wishes and good health,

Robert Otok, Lore Leighton, Naomi Nathan
