Spring semester 2023 Research Interaction Day will be similar to University of Maryland School of Public
Health Poster Research Day events held in prior years. This event was often held concurrently with the
much larger Public Health Research @ Maryland conference co-sponsored by the University of
Maryland, Baltimore. The Public Health Research @ Maryland conference is postponed for 2023 in order
to integrate more fully other public higher education institutions in Maryland that are involved in public
