Join Our Webinar and Learn How to Increase Your Chances of Being Selected for an International GOARN Response Mission

Are you interested in becoming a public health emergency responder but are not sure how to begin?

During this free, hour-long webinar on December 2 (times listed below), organized by TEPHINET and GOARN (the Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network), members of the GOARN team who are responsible for screening applications from potential responders will lead a discussion on:

  • how GOARN operates,
  • the GOARN application process, and
  • how you can create a personal C.V. (curriculum vitae) that highlights your skills in the most relevant way.

Learn what is involved in deploying through GOARN and how you can create the strongest application possible.
