We are very grateful for your continued support, volunteerism, and involvement with IVU through the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to promote the safety of our volunteers and global partners, our in-person workshops are currently on hold. As soon as vaccines are widely distributed globally and we’re certain that in-person programming is safe, we’ll pick up where we left off with our signature training workshops.
In the meantime, we’ve embraced virtual learning and chosen to see these challenges as opportunities. We created a Virtual Visiting Professor lecture series that partners with hospitals in more than 12 countries and reaches hundreds of providers around the globe. All of our virtual lectures are available online and can be accessed through our Virtual Lecture Archive. Our increased online presence has proven invaluable and will continue even after we’re able to travel again.
We’re thrilled that we’ve created and fostered a Global Consult Program and research mentorship opportunities. These programs offer peer-to-peer support on complex cases and research projects.
Thank you, again, for your dedicated support of our work. We will let you know as soon as we’re traveling again. Until then, we encourage you to get involved with our Virtual Visiting Professor lecture series, Global Consult Program, and/or research mentorship opportunities. Please reach out to Katie, IVU’s program director, for more information.
Thanks to your generous support, IVU reaches thousands of children and adults with life-changing surgical care. Dedicated volunteers train hundreds of doctors and nurses each year to help ensure that quality surgical care will be available in the communities IVU serves for years to come.
Thank you for helping us Teach One, Reach Many.
