Research Day

12th Annual Research Day Symposium

Research Day brings together environmental and occupational health students, trainees from our Mountain & Plains Education and Research Center (MAP ERC), and local professionals to celebrate student research in environmental and occupational health. This annual event is a wonderful opportunity for students to practice their presentation skills, showcase their research, and network with professionals in the field. For business leaders and community members, attending Research Day is a great way to meet new talent and learn about innovative research. This year's theme? The future of work and the environment: assessing the changing nature of work, climate change, and emerging diseases in the 21st century.
