Spring 2019 Seminar Series

The Department of Environmental and Global Health Seminar Series is an opportunity for students and faculty to come together to learn about cutting-edge research from colleagues around the country every week. This Spring 2019, we have invited a variety of professional and student speakers to join us, and have a few special dates planned. As such, there are a few date and time discrepancies, so please make note.

  • The Department is partnering with the One Health Center for Excellence on 1/15, 3/12 and 4/16. These seminars will be an hour and a half long, and lunch will be served.
  • We will be live streaming all seminars in EPI 150. Tune in Tuesdays, at 11:30 am at, epi.ufl.edu/seminars to watch our speakers present live. If you miss seminar live, a recording will be available the following week for each seminar.

See below for updates about speakers, locations, presentation topics, and recordings. If you would like to be added to the listserv to receive updates each week, please email egh-programs@phhp.ufl.edu.
