Public Health Research Day Moves Online!

Public Health Research Day, back in normal times

As you are aware COVID-19 has made us think differently about how we conduct our everyday lives and also how we share our scholarship. As such, this year Public Health Research Day will happen – but in a very different way. Public Health Research Day is our annual showcase of scientific posters by students and trainees that has been held at Brown for over two decades. Despite our disappointment at not being able to convene in person this year, we were determined to share this year’s posters while protecting health, respecting social distancing, and also allowing for interaction between poster authors and the wider Brown community. As a result, Public Health Research Day has moved online!

The entire Brown community is invited to visit the Public Health Research Day site. This password protected site will require Brown credentials to browse over 80 posters by title, designation, research topic area, or by author’s name. There is also an option on the site to post your comments, questions, or congratulations. Please report technical issues with the site to [email protected]. Posters will not be judged today but will be judged remotely over the coming few weeks. Winning posters will be announced by email on April 29, 2020.

I want to thank everyone who made this online poster session possible, including all of the poster authors, reviewers, judges, and our partners at the Rhode Island Department of Health. A big thank you must also go out to the School’s communications and academic team staff members who went above and beyond to make Research Day 2020 possible. 

Enjoy Research Day!
