CANCELED: UM Nursing Global Reproductive and Sexual Health Summer Institute
Due to the recent events related to the COVID-19 virus, all U-M events on campus convening 100 people or more have been canceled until at least April 21, 2020. Because the Summer Institute draws a large global audience, it is with deep regret we are canceling the 3rd Annual Global Reproductive and Sexual Health Summer Institute, May 7-8, 2020 conference and May 11-15, 2020 workshops.
This year was shaping up to be our most successful Summer Institute to date with higher attendance from a diverse global audience. We will reschedule the event for next year and hope you are able to join us in 2021.
Offered by the University of Michigan School of Nursing, with faculty from across the health sciences, this third annual UMSN Summer Institute is designed to help participants gain a broad insight into contemporary issues in reproductive and sexual health. This short, intensive course will allow participants to gain the skills and knowledge to advance their inquiry in global reproductive and sexual health through a two-day conference followed by a five-day workshop. Participants may choose to attend the two-day conference only, or both the conference and the workshop.
