This spring's iteration of the biannual IPID Student Speaker Conference will take place this Friday, April 6 from 3-7pm in Walter Library Room 101.
This semester's theme is Development and Global Health, and we have a slate of five student speakers who will give 15-20 minute presenters on a variety of relevant topics. Each talk will be followed by a brief Q&A session, and after all the speakers have made their presentations, there will be a moderated discussion involving all presenters and audience members.
Following are the titles of each of the five presenters, and the names of the presenters. You can find more details about these talks here. If you plan to come, please RSVP on the Facebook event page. Also, if you are interested in global health issues, please see details about the GHIG social event on Thursday 5th in the "Other events of interest" section of this newsletter, below.
