Public Health Research Day 2020

Public Health Research Day Abstract Book Published!

Dear Colleagues,

Although Public Health Research Day 2020 was cancelled due to current events, we would like to celebrate the hard work and contributions by presenters. The Office of Research Excellence is excited to publish the Public Health Research Day Abstract Book as tribute to those who submitted their research. Thank you again to everyone involved, especially the three schools: Milken Institute School of Public Health, GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences, and GW School of Nursing. We would also like to thank Trudy Mallinson, Associate Dean for Health Sciences Research (SON), and Jeanne Geiger-Brown, Associate Dean for Research (SMHS) for their support and collaboration.

Public Health Research Day, April 8 - Cancelled

Dear Colleagues,

As we continue to grapple with the consequences associated with the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, the risk/benefit ratio for potential crowd participation must be carefully considered. Many events at GW have been cancelled and/or rescheduled and reflecting on the utmost consideration for our participating presenters, speakers, and guests, it is in the best interest of all to not carry on with planning or hosting this year’s Public Health Research Day event on 8 April 2020. Cancellation of this event is a recognition of the coordinated response of GW to the pandemic - and we thank everyone, especially from the 3 schools (GWSPH, GWSMHS, GWSON) for their engagement thus far.

Please stay safe and Healthy! 

The Office of Research Excellence (ORE)
