Student Poster Day

Friday, April 28, 2017

The School of Public Health Annual Student Poster Day will be held on Friday, April 28, 2017 from 10:00am to 12:00pm in the School of Public Health, George Education Center, Health Sciences Campus.

Information regarding deadlines, abstract submission and poster preparation guidelines will be provided on this website at the start of the Spring 2017 semester. 

Student Poster Day is an opportunity for students to present on their graduate research projects or internships, which are an integral part of their academic experience at the School of Public Health.  Both internships and collaborative research between students and faculty exemplify the School of Public Health's commitment to practice-based research and education.  Students should consult with their department regarding participation requirements. Graduating MPH students are required to present on one internship experience.

The Student Poster Day program represents the hallmark of what makes this School of Public Health a national leader in practice-based research and education. Each presentation represents countless hours of collaboration between faculty advisors, graduate students, and internship mentors, involving research that is focused not on theoretical constructs, but rather on urgent, real-world public health issues and concerns. More importantly, many faculty and former students have affirmed that there is an important exchange of energy and perspective in these collaborations which benefits and transforms both the faculty members and the students who participate in them.
