WEBINAR: Why Public Health?

LIVE WEBINAR: Interactive Discussion on Your Opportunities & Career Pathways in Public Health tailored to your background

Monday, 30 July 2018 @4:00 PM (MYT/ GMT+8)


Public Health has never been more important, as we seek to prevent disease and ensure citizens have long and healthy lives.
Public health is about looking after the health of individuals and the population as distinct from dealing directly with the consequences of illness and treating sick individuals. The emphasis is on the prevention of disease and tackling the factors that contribute to illness such as environmental and behavioural factors.

Depending on your background education, qualification and experience, there are countless reasons why public health should be a study option especially with the many local and international career prospects.

Register now, join the discussion and plan your own professional future in Public Health locally or internationally to prevent disease and ensure citizens live long and healthy.
