    TOPIC: Postgraduate Program in Medicine and Health

    The restrictions caused by COVID-19 pandemics accelerated the globalization process in higher education. Universities all over the world incorporated Information Technology support. In Brazil, the Federal University of Bahia (UFBA) is making efforts to adapt to remote work and activities. UFBA is a large, public academic institution in Salvador City, the capital of the State of Bahia. The Postgraduate Program in Medicine and Health (PPGMS) from the Faculty of Medicine investigates quality of life, and aspects related to environment, work, and health. In the session, we will present lines of research and studies about quality of life conducted by the PPGMS, aiming to promote international collaboration in this field.

    “Quality-of-life and Adaptation in a Virulent World”


    23-27 AUGUST 2021

    Given the uncertainty of the current global pandemic, travel restrictions, and planning challenges the 2021 ISQOLS Annual Conference will be held virtually August 23 through the 27th, 2021 (specific times to be announced). The ISQOLS 2021 Conference will offer a forum for discussion of the research findings concerning quality of life, well-being, and happiness, similar to all of our past, in-person conferences.

    The theme of the Conference is “quality-of-life and adaptation in a virulent world”. The world has changed dramatically in the past year. How do we now examine quality-of-life, wellbeing, and happiness? What are the challenges and opportunities for well-being research and policy in the face of a global pandemic? What important work is being carried out to encourage personal, communal, environmental, and social resiliency in a Covid-19 world? We invite researchers, practitioners, students, professionals, faculty, retirees, experts and novices to participate and engage in this virtual event.
