ISHA Academy Module Committee

The key goals of the ISHA Academy Module Committee are to increase access to online ISHA related content and to improve the user experience while accessing this content.

The Committee works with other Committees on developing access to top notch content, and the latest initiative is the development of “non-event content” with online peer reviewed publications, videos, etc.

Although more work is to be done, we are confident that our efforts will help to showcase the best and most informative online content to the ISHA membership.
