Monthly Departmental Research Forums
The department hosts a monthly research forum (coordinated by Judy Savageau, MPH) at which faculty and students are encouraged to present research in progress, new grant ideas, data analysis plans, etc. The goal for these forums is to provide faculty with the necessary feedback and assistance to bring scholarly projects to completion.
