Each year the Section on Public Health & Preventive Medicine has hosted a Student Poster Session that showcases regional public health research by students and professionals from public health and related disciplines. This year, due to social distancing measures related to COVID-19, the event, renamed Student Research Session, will be held virtually, with students posting short videos, instead of posters of their research presentations, on the College of Physicians’ YouTube Channel. In late April/early May, the College of Physicians will open up the YouTube Channel and invite people to view and comment on the presentations to provide important feedback and dialogue with the presenters.
Participants must be a member of The College’s Section on Public Health and Preventive Medicine or be a student at one of the Section’s Institutional Membership Organizations: Arcadia University, Drexel University, La Salle University, Temple University, Thomas Jefferson University, University of Pennsylvania, and West Chester University.
