Public Health Research @ Maryland 2021: Learning from 2020 to Advance Public Health
Since 2013, the University of Maryland School of Public Health in College Park, in collaboration with the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore, has held an annual showcase of public health research collaborations and innovations in Maryland, known as "Public Health Research at Maryland." In 2020, the eighth annual event was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic and the challenges of moving a large, typically in-person event online with short notice.
Mark your calendar to join us for our 2021 event! With the theme Learning from 2020 to Advance Public Health, this year's research showcase will be held online over three days (April 13-15).
