And today we cooperate with USJ to launch the "Health Information Analysis” program which aims to develop the competencies of analysts in turning information from databases into valuable data for better informed business decisions”.

Mr. Kharma concluded "As for the scholarship program, it is a token of appreciation and loyalty to the Saint Joseph University and its distinguished academic status as a beacon for higher education, which has graduated many prominent Lebanese personalities.

On behalf of ISSP public health students, Marc Jreij said "GlobeMed provides substantial financial and moral support which will allow students to innovate. It is a very rewarding initiative at both the academic level and the health sector level in Lebanon. "

After signing the memorandum, Professor Daccache presented Mr. Kharma "Portrait of the USJ" book retracing the history of the University. The ceremony was concluded with a cocktail reception.
