Join us for the 9th Annual Research Day Symposium on March 9, 2017 at the Westin in Westminster, CO. 

Every spring, the Research Day Symposium brings together students in the Environmental and Occupational Health program, trainees from our Mountains & Plains Education and Research Center (MAP ERC), and local professionals to celebrate student research in environmental and occupational health. Research Day is a wonderful opportunity for students to practice their presentation skills, showcase their research, and network with professionals in the field. The event is free but you must register to attend.

Register today.
