Public Health Research at Maryland Event

SPH Research Poster Session

Tuesday, April 5 | 10 am – 1 pm EST
School of Public Health, Ground Floor Concourse

As part of Public Health Research at Maryland 2022, students, faculty and community partners are invited to share innovations and new research directions at the SPH Research Poster Session and Student Poster Competition.

As in the past, posters may include research projects as well as public health practice projects. New in 2022, we are adding a poster prize for “Innovative Solutions to Public Health Challenges.” We will also offer three student poster prizes for research to address health disparities, made possible by gifts in memory of Mitchell Stewart. 

These concepts will be judged separately and will be awarded cash prizes. 

This year’s competition is led by Professor Dina Borzekowski in her role as the Director of Student Research for the Delta Omega Gamma Zeta Chapter leadership team.

Poster templates and video guides can be found at

The priority deadline for poster submission is March 29, 2022. 

History of Public Health Research at Maryland 

Since 2013, MPowering the State has sponsored our annual event showcasing innovations in public health research and its implications for the health of our Maryland communities.

The University of Maryland School of Public Health (in College Park) partners each year with our colleagues in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (in Baltimore) to plan the program and to engage researchers from diverse disciplines from the College Park and Baltimore campuses and beyond.
