About Research Day

Now in its 24th year, SPHHS Research Day is an annual showcase for the research and practice conducted by students in all of our departments. Undergraduate and graduate students, as well as postdoctoral researchers, are invited to present their work to the faculty, staff, peers, and the broader community.

Both oral and poster presentations are judged by a faculty jury and prizes awarded in distinct categories. Two $1,500 travel awards will be issued to the best oral presentations – one from a public health discipline (Environmental Health Sciences, Biostatistics and Epidemiology, Health Policy and Promotion), and another from a health science discipline (Nutrition, Communication Disorders, Kinesiology). Several poster awards will be awarded for best poster presentations..
