Public Health Research at Maryland 2022: New Directions
Join us during National Public Health Week for several events to share new research, network and learn from each other. Our annual “Public Health Research at Maryland” event will look a little different this year. Changes were in the making before the pandemic and in response to the end of the MPowering the State funding support for this annual event.
Mark your calendars for this year’s planned events happening under the theme of Local Action for Global Health and Equity.
April 5, 2022: 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
SPH Research Poster Session
Dozens of students, faculty and community partners will share innovations and new research directions at the SPH Research Poster Session, including the 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 category for “Innovative Solutions to Public Health Challenges.”. These concepts will be judged separately. This event is planned to be held in person (SPH Volleyball Gym), but we are taking precautionary steps in the event we will need to shift to a virtual meeting.
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.

Public Health Research at Maryland 2022
The 2022 Public Health Research at Maryland event will again be co-organized by the School of Public Health and the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at the University of Maryland School of Medicine but will be hosted virtually by the School of Medicine.
The event will bring together faculty, students and staff from public health academic programs across seven of the USM campuses for a panel discussion to share their approaches to address challenging public health issues through research and practice activities. The event is patterned after our previous “Public Health Research at Maryland” events and will include a keynote lecture, two panels and an opportunity to view a student poster gallery with selected representative students from each campus.
This event will take place virtually. Registration link to come.
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 the 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.
