The all-day Forum held at the NYU College of Dentistry brought together educators from medical, dental, nursing, social work, and public health schools to discuss strategies for implementing their practices in global health. Quinn co-hosted a breakout session with Dr. David Stern, MD of the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine that focused on using information technology in global health education. She demonstrated Global Learning Initiative projects such as the Global Master's in Development Practice and the Global Honors College, and helped forum participants consider how their institutions might implement existing digital tools to create globally collaborative courses in the fields of medicine, dentistry, and public health.
