Thirty years after Cottler created the original HealthStreet model, she continues to blaze new trails and find new paths for public health collaboration, not just locally, but also within the global community.
HealthStreet founding director, Linda B. Cottler, Ph.D., MPH, FACE, traveled to Taiwan last week to speak at the Taiwan Food and Drug Administration’s “2019 International Conference on New Psychoactive Substances.” The conference took place at the National Taiwan University, July 10-11, 2019.
“The Taiwanese FDA has been very welcoming of our thoughts,” Cottler said in an email.
Cottler remained in Taiwan to attend the 2019 International Conference on Site-Specific Drug Control and Addiction Treatment, July 12-13, at the Kaohsiung Medical University. She returned to the U.S. on Sunday, July 14, and hosted a retreat with the UF HealthStreet team on Monday.
Later this summer, Cottler will be presenting at the 11th Thailand Substance Abuse Conference: International Influences on Drug Abuse at the Miracle Grand Convention Hotel, in Bangkok, Thailand.
Chula HealthStreet, which is part of the College of Public Health Sciences at Chulalongkorn University, is one of the organizers of this conference. We are proud of our international HealthStreet colleagues and wish them great success with this event!
Cottler will wrap up her summer tour with a presentation at the World Psychiatric Association Congress on Psychiatry in Lisbon, Portugal from August 21-24.
