INSIGHTS '17 is a showcase for students, postdoctoral fellows, adjuncts, instructors, staff and faculty affiliated with the School of Public Health to learn and become informed about innovations in public health research and practice. Take part in interactive discussions, learn about the varied research projects and practice initiatives taking place across the School, and connect with your peers and colleagues.

INSIGHTS is designated as a non-teaching day within the School so that students and instructors can participate. This day-long celebration will showcase the work of colleagues and peers through keynote address, panel, oral and poster presentations.
