On May, 3, 2019, the Center for Health IPE will host an interprofessional health poster showcase that provides a forum for undergraduate and graduate students to present their projects in one of three categories: community, quality improvement, and research. These projects all pertain to advancing population health and provide students with valuable leadership and collaborative opportunities. Attendees will have the opportunity to hone their interprofessional skills through hands-on activities, network with colleagues, and support impact-driven student scholarship. Faculty, staff, students, and community members will be invited to attend this FREE event. An agenda and more information is forthcoming. There are several ways for you to get involved:
Build your brand and demonstrate your support of student leadership and collaborative learning by sponsoring the showcase. Industry partners are invited to sponsor at the $500 level and campus partners are invited to sponsor at the $250 level. As a sponsor, your organization or company logo will be included on all event promotional materials and you'll be invited to serve as a judge for the poster competition. Email us if you are interested.
We welcome faculty, staff, students, and community members to learn about our students’ health-related scholarship, participate in IPE learning experiences, and network with colleagues and students. Invitations are forthcoming. If you're interested in attending, send us a message to make sure you're on our email list.
