The Collegium of Scholars (COS) is an M-CHE forum which, through a range of activities, engages scholars in the exchange of meaningful discussions regarding the complexities and impact of race, racism, ethnicity, gender, class, and discrimination on health and wellness.

The COS is held on the second Wednesday of each month of the academic year, September through May, from noon to 1:30pm.  While each COS event is unique, the general format is for the featured guest to give a 45 minute presentation followed by 45 minutes of discussion.  The extended discussion period is intentional and allows for a deeper exploration of the topics covered than in the typical 10-15 minute discussion following many presentations. 

Upcoming Collegium of Scholar Events:

Wednesday, April 13

Time: 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Location: Maryland Center for Health Equity Conference Room, 3rd Floor, SPH

Please join us for a presentation and interactive discussion regarding “Pesticide Exposure Intervention in Low-Income Latino Children: the Role of Organic Diets.”

Featured Speaker:

Dr. Lesliam Quiros-Alcala
Assistant Professor, Maryland Institute for Applied Environmental Health
School of Public Health
