Public Health Sciences hold their own 3 minute research competition

December 2014

​Last week, Rebecca Yeung (MPH student) coordinated a three minute research competition for the department.  Graduate students, Post-Docs and faculty in the department were invited to test their skills at explaining their research to each other.  Based on the 3 Minute Thesis competition (which we will be holding again in March 2015), this was a great example of a group getting together to have some fun and share what research is going on within their own department.

Valerie Michaelson, a post-doc won first place for the People's Choice Award.  They also had 3 faculty members and 6 graduate students present.
