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.
