Social Innovation Summer Training Workshop


Social innovation in health is defined as a community-engaged process that links social change and health improvement, drawing on the diverse strengths of local individuals and institutions. Social innovation contends that having local beneficiaries drive the development of a health program leads to more accountable and sustainable services. (
Halpaap et al, Lancet Global Health, 2020).

From July 5th to August 16th between 8am and 9am ET time, Social Entrepreneurship to Spur Health (SESH), Social Innovation in Health Initiative (SIHI) and UNC CFAR TechEngage will organize a Social Innovation Summer Training Workshop each Tuesday.

Social innovation fellows and researchers will present one-hour workshops focused on community-engaged research, infectious diseases of poverty, crowdfunding, and related topics.
