The LRC was launched in May of 2020 in response to continued remote education and travel restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, we have had an amazing experience interacting with learners, course directors, webinar panelists and academic partners across the globe. The reach and quality of our programs is possible thanks to our amazing partners at Assist International. We are forever grateful for their amazing work and support of our vision.
As established by the WHO in 1948, we believe health is 'a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity'.
No travel is needed. We believe global health is public health and it starts at home. We strive to serve the most vulnerable populations regardless of geography. We work toward justice and equity in access to health, and believe that education and strengthening the healthcare workforce are keys to better health for all. We are all part of a global community.
