Immersive Workshop – Expanded Portfolios

January 28, 2019 in ADPH Updates, Events, Masterclasses and workshops, Upcoming events by Teresa Grandi

Tuesday 5th March 2019, St Brides Foundation

The ADPH are keen to support those members who have expanded portfolios and will be running a workshop for this group. The main purpose of the day will be for the DsPH to problem solve together but we expect also to build in an input on theory of leadership.

DsPH with a wider portfolio and who would like to help us shape this day, should contact Zahra

Additionally, we will be holding an informal lunchtime discussion for this group at our annual conference in December. DsPH are welcome to join in to help us inform the outline of the workshop.
