International Annual Summer Institute on COMBI
An annual two-week international Summer Institute on COMBI is tentatively scheduled for June 2022 at the City University of New York, School of Public Health. Similar workshops have been held in the past at Hong Kong University/School of Journalism, and the School of Medicine, Nagoya University/Japan. For further information please contact Dr. Everold Hosein at Everold@gmail.com.
Regional and Country-Level COMBI Training
The COMBI Institute also conducts COMBI workshops of shorter duration (3-9 days) at the regional and country level. The longer the workshop period, the better trained are the participants. But even in a short workshop, participants emerge with a grasp of the 10-Step COMBI Planning approach.
During the past 10 years the COMBI Institute has conducted over 70 such workshops.
