An induction practicum training session was conducted at the Auditorium of Spears Campus for the Public Health students at the School of Heath Sciences. Dr. Nisreen Alwan opened the session by greeting the NGOs and students present stressing on the importance of the practicum in shaping their role as future Public Health specialists. Ms. Diana Maddah, the practicum coordinator, highlighted the objectives, deliverables, and expectations to students. Three NGOs, Teach for Lebanon, NAHNOO, and Women’s Program Association, presented the objectives, mission, vision and role of their foundations in making a difference in the community. The session ended by a Q & A discussion.
We wish our Public Health students best of luck in their practicum. We are quite confident that this practical experience will provide them with the needed skills in the field and will put them one step further towards their graduation and towards their mission as leading Public Health specialists in Lebanon and the region.
