2020 Public Health Poster Forum Presentations

Every year students from the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public health organize a Poster Forum event to demonstrate their research projects. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there was no chance for a physical Poster Forum event, so the students innovated and produced a “virtual” Poster Forum event. In the videos and slideshows below, public health students explain their projects.

Poster Forum Keynote Panel: Climate Change & Human Health

The Poster Forum event has always included a Keynote Panel on a public health topic. This year students found a way to host the Keynote Panel on Zoom (instead of a “live” in-person event) and still drew a passionate audience. The Keynote Panel’s presentation, Climate Change & Human Health, features Arizona Representative Kirsten Engel, Dr. Monica Ramirez-Andreotta, and Dr. Mona Arora. The presentation can be seen here.
