2:00-3:00 pm (ET)
The Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) is proud to announce the third event in our 2018 IPEC Webinar Series aimed at highlighting trends and activities in interprofessional education (IPE) and practice.

Innovative student-led initiatives and special student organizations strengthen existing models for IPE and create new opportunities for students to transform into effective members of a collaborative practice team. Students are uniquely positioned to help foster practices towards team-based care.
