Invitation to join the new "Young Professionals Chronic Disease Network" Community
Leaders of the Young Professionals Chronic Disease Network (YP-CDN) invite you to join their new public community on GHDonline.org.
They first joined GHDonline in 2009 to host a private space for their members - professionals at various stages in their careers - to collaborate and plan the fight against the global epidemic of non-communicable chronic diseases. Now, their community goes public. Rich in more than 400 members from 55 countries, members of YP-CDN await your input as they seek to build a cohesive, diverse, and global community to drive policy, research, and social change for a healthy and equitable future.
