Student Poster Day

Friday, April 22nd, 2016

The School of Public Health Annual Student Poster Day was held on Friday, April 22, 2016 from 10:00am to 1:30pm in the School of Public Health, George Education Center, East Campus.

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.
