All Colorado State University students, faculty, and staff, as well as the wider community, are invited to celebrate the incredible accomplishments of research and creative scholarship in the College of Health and Human Sciences at the CHHS Research Day event. This year, the college is planning for an in-person event in the Lory Student Center Main Ballroom from 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. on March 1.

A poster show will be held in the morning, showcasing research posters and creative scholarship produced by faculty, staff, post-doctoral fellows, and students in Health and Human Sciences. The afternoon events include lunch and keynote address, lightning talks given by faculty members in each of the eight academic units in the College as well as the two CHHS Dean’s Fellows, and an awards ceremony celebrating the winners of the poster show.

This year, the keynote address will be given by Dr. Rebecca Hasson, associate professor in the School of Kinesiology and director of the Childhood Disparities Research Laboratory at the University of Michigan. Those interested in attending can RSVP for specific events at the Research Day page.
