90-minute Conference Session

Health and Safety Begin at Pre-departure: A Checklist for Success

Wednesday, October 19
10:15 AM - 11:45 AM
Room: Heritage

“Be prepared” is an important mantra in study abroad –  where there is so much that cannot be predicted now. That preparation, however, can vary depending upon factors including the program type and the destination. Through an interactive conversation this session looks at how we minimize health and safety risks for our students, what materials and resources are available to students, and how to help them prepare for any risks that arise.
