Industry Leaders StudyAbroad.com and HTH Worldwide Announce Integral Partnership to Provide Health and Safety Resources for Study Abroad Students
Videos, mobile apps, blogs and more to educate and engage study abroad students
May 26, 2011 (Chester, PA)—StudyAbroad.com, the Internet's leading source of study abroad information, announced a strategic partnership with global health and safety services company HTH Worldwide to streamline educational efforts and raise awareness for the safety and well-being of study abroad students.
Focused on educating study abroad students about the health and safety of international travel, HTH Worldwide and StudyAbroad.com will share videos, blogs and other social media resources to engage students in the conversation of remaining safe while abroad. Sharing resourceful health and safety content and leading conversations pertinent to student travelers will be more effective and powerful through collaborative efforts, than if each company promoted such messages independently.
“Health and safety issues are always a concern for students and parents,” says Josh Irons, Director of Product Marketing, EducationDynamics. “We have found a partner in HTH who feels as strongly as we do about advocating studying abroad and supplying first-rate information and advice to StudyAbroad.com’s millions of visitors.”
“At HTH, we encourage our student members to plan for their medical needs before embarking on a study abroad program. Partnering with StudyAbroad.com helps us deliver our vital information to a broad student population to enable them to better prepare for their experience abroad,” said Mike Babore, Director of Student Sales for HTH Worldwide.
