Research Day
 

Research Day Symposium


The 10th Annual Research Day Symposium will be held April 5, 2018 at the Omni Interlocken Resort in Broomfield, Colorado. This event brings together environmental and occupational health students, 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. For business leaders and community members, attending Research Day is a great way to meet new talent and learn about innovative research.
