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.
