The International Association of Medical Science Educators (IAMSE) invites you to join us for our inaugural Virtual Forum! Join us December 2-3 and 5-6 as we host workshops, ignite talks, posters, lightning talks, roundtable discussions and more. Borders come in all forms, from geo-political to socio-economic, from online to face to face, and from diversity to experience levels. This forum will feature conversations that showcase the borders but give actionable suggestions on how to remove them and build community. The first of our four ignite speakers is Warren Gary Lavey from the Carle Illinois College of Medicine in the United States. He will present Medical Students Want and Need to Learn Climate Change Impacts and Advocacy on Monday, December 5, 2022.

Climate change is a major determinant of health and condition for providing medical education.
