Another Successful Celebration of Health Professions Education

The Celebration of Health Professions Education Event, hosted by the Colleges of Graduate Studies, Medicine and Pharmacy, and the Office of Faculty Enrichment and Engagement, in collaboration with the Bitonte College of Dentistry, was held on April 17 in the Watanakunakorn Auditorium and via Zoom.

The event kicked-off with the plenary with Tim Brown, Pharm.D., BCACP, FASHP, presenting “Optimizing Health Equity: Focus on IPE and DEI Intersection.” He also led an Interprofessional Education (IPE) workshop following his opening talk.
