Congratulations to Dr Filippos Filippidis who has been appointed a Lecturer in Public Health in the Department of Public Health and Primary Care and School of Public Health at Imperial College London. We are currently advertising for a new Teaching Fellow to replace Filippidis in his current role.
Staff from the WHO Collaborating Centre for Public Health Education and Training and twenty students from the Master of Public Health course at Imperial visited multiple UN and humanitarian agencies during their recent trip to Geneva, Switzerland. Over a three day period the group visited Médecins Sans Frontières, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, UN, WHO and Global Fund. Two students – Praise Izinyon and Rachael Williams – presented their mini-projects at the WHO followed by an excellent discussion with Blerta Maliqi, a technical officer for Family, Women’s and Children’s health.
