Introducing New 2017 Health Security Stewards

Health Security Partners is pleased to introduce the 2017 Health Security Stewards Fellows from Indonesia! This cohort brings together researchers and faculty from universities across Indonesia with expertise in clinical microbiology, public health and veterinary health.

The Stewards Fellowship commenced with a Training Institute, held in Yogyakarta, Indonesia on October 10-13. Throughout the week, the Fellows engaged with expert lectures from the United States, Indonesia, and the Philippines on topics related to health security and curriculum development. The training culminated with brief presentations from each of the Fellows on a health security topic of their choosing to showcase the new teaching methods introduced throughout the week.

The Fellowship continues with a year-long virtual curriculum, during which Fellows will develop a health security course to be implemented at their respective universities.

We look forward to working with these Health Security Stewards!
