Global Chapter Network Calls

Throughout the year, the IHI Open School hosts Global Chapter Network Calls alongside our Global Chapter Leaders. The calls provide an opportunity for new and seasoned Chapters Le​aders, Chapter members, Faculty Advisors, or those interested in starting a Chapter, to connect and discuss best practices, opportunities, and common challenges they've faced in their work. The calls are also a great chance to share the local work your Chapter is doing with a global network of leaders and innovators.
