Students Highlight Their Research at a Virtual Poster Session

April 29, 2020

Ten Dornsife students, along with other Drexel students engaged in public health research, participated in the Dornsife Virtual Public Health Student Poster Session on April 29th, showcasing their work over the past year to dozens of virtual attendees.

This event, coordinated by the Office of Public Health Practice, provided the opportunity for those who had originally been accepted to the annual College of Physicians Public Health Student Poster Session to broadly share their findings to those within the Dornsife community.

Topics presented ranged from the development of a tool to characterize potential factors contributing to urban heat vulnerability to associations to weight perception among cancer survivors to a qualitative analysis of Latino-serving providers in the region.

Guests were given the chance to learn about their research and scholarly work.

Congratulations to these students on their excellent work!
