From June 18-20, 2019, K4Health Director Tara Sullivan and USAID LEARN Chief of Party Piers Bocock will once again offer their course, "Knowledge Management for Effective Global Health Programs." It is offered through the Summer Institute of the Health, Behavior, and Society Department (HBS) of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH).

Register by May 24 for this and other courses (JHSPH students may register on the JHSPH website; all others, please register at the general Johns Hopkins non-degree registration system, choosing "Summer Institute in Health Behavior and Society" from the dropdown menu), or download the course flyer. Information about JHSPH tuition fees is available at the Summer Institute tuition page.

This acclaimed three-day in-person course has earned "Excellence in Teaching" awards for both instructors, and uses participatory approaches to:

  • Define knowledge management and related principles
  • Explain challenges to implementing KM programs
  • Help determine the best KM approaches for real-life public health programs

Students will also join a global network of alumni who share experiences and resources related to using the learned knowledge management and organizational learning practices in their work.

This three-day course will be held in person at the JHSPH HBS Summer Institute building, Hampton House, in East Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
