Our graduates take what they learn through IHTM and use it to address health challenges in their post-IHTM working environments. They draw on connections they gained with faculty on the course to extend partnerships and to promote collaboration. Below are just a few examples of the work that IHTM alumni are undertaking post IHTM.

"Outside my research work, I have tried to give back to my local community. I have organised in-person workshops for teachers at a local school and an online workshop for mothers on the use of positive discipline approaches for education and parenting. This was made possible through the communication, presentation and organisation skills I honed during IHTM."
