International SOS SIMEX and Panel Discussion: Register

Simulation Exercise and Panel Discussion in NYC

Thursday, Oct. 3, 2019 | New York City

International SOS in partnership with IIE is hosting an afternoon of crisis simulation exercises and panel discussions designed to hone your skills as a travel risk management leader in higher education.

 

 

FOR OVER 30 YEARS WE HAVE SUPPORTED SCHOOLS & UNIVERSITIES TAKING STUDENTS AND STAFF AWAY FROM THE CLASSROOM TO GAIN THE BROADEST POSSIBLE EDUCATION.


Before students and staff go abroad, it is important to fully manage the travel, security and health risks that they may face. Providing information on personal security, cultural and travel tips, health issues, food and water safety as well as vaccinations, can help make your overseas field trips and study abroad programs a better experience.

 

 

 

 

INTERNATIONAL SOS GLOBAL SERVICES INCLUDE AFFORDABLE MEDICAL, SAFETY AND SECURITY PLANNING, PREVENTATIVE PROGRAMS, IN-COUNTRY EXPERTISE AND EMERGENCY RESPONSE FOR MORE THAN 9,000 CLIENTS WORLDWIDE.

While insurance firms take care of financial risks, International SOS takes care of your students and staff.

STORY WORTH SHARING


“Out in the field with a large party of school children, you never quite know what’s behind you or what’s coming. I’m from the UK originally, where we can call ‘999’ if we need assistance, but out here we call International SOS.”

The United World College of South East Asia (UWCSEA)
