Another possible future project will focus on retrospective assessment of our LIFT and Sustain attendees to assess proficiency. We are also continuing our efforts to connect with HEAL leaders and discuss future study ideas.The current chair of the committee is Minka Gil and the assistant co-chair is Imaima Casubhoy.
