Learning Shorts

iTHRIV periodically creates short educational videos, named "Learning Shorts". Learning Shorts are brief, digestible online educational offerings organized around a specific topic. iTHRIV hopes that these videos will help educate, dispel misinformation, and create a basis for conversation between the community and health researchers. This page is updated as new videos are created, so be sure to check back!
