  community member   < less Current

The World NCD Congress 2020, co-organized by the University of Michigan and the World NCD Federation, will assemble stakeholders from around the world and across diverse sectors to address the critical, growing impact of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) on the well-being and economies of all nations. The conference will leverage cutting-edge research to inform and catalyze multisectoral actions for reducing the global NCD burden.
Two days of high-impact workshops preceding the main conference will cover topics including the principles of learning health systems, the role of big data in identifying trends, comprehensive disease surveillance strategies, big data and predictive analytics for prevention, health system strengthening and intervention evaluation.
Within a learning health systems framework, each of the four days comprising the main Congress program will address the evidence base and recommended actions for one or more root causes.

  community member   < less PhoenixPhest Chamber Music & Jazz Festival

August 3-7 | 10:30am-5pm
In everyday life and even more during the ongoing pandemic, we need to feed our passion and creativity. During PhoenixPhest, students will learn new technological tools to continue nourishing their creativity, their love of music, and enjoy camaraderie with their fellow musicians, even though they cannot meet in person.
The curriculum is equally structured to care for a student's wellness as it is to nourish their musical creativity. Compassion and mindfulness are essential to building a supportive community. At PhoenixPhest we nourish the whole musician in each of us.
The virtual PhoenixPhest curriculum for chamber music and jazz ensembles will provide music study and exploration, introducing new technologies, while building observational and listening skills. Re-energize and engage with PhoenixPhest!
Virtual. Online. $475. 734-213-2000. communications@cmsa2.org https://www.cmsa2.org/phoenixphest.html
