New “Health” Component Added to IPD’s Program: China: Environment, Health & Development

May 24, 2010. Northwestern's Office of International Program Development (IPD) has announced a major enhancement of one of its programs, “China: Environment and Development,” first launched in 2009. To be rebranded as “China: Environment, Health and Development,” the revised Program will integrate public health and environmental issues into the curriculum beginning in Fall Quarter 2010.
