Events and Competitions - Student Poster Sessions
2011 Poster Session
 

In 2011, the Delta Omega Honorary Society in Public Health will sponsor its 14th Annual Student Poster Session through the Academic Public Health Caucus during the 139th American Public Health Association Annual Meeting and Exposition in Washington, DC. The poster sessions will showcase the excellent scholarship and research of students in accredited schools and programs of public health. This opportunity was created by Delta Omega to encourage and recognize the public health leaders of tomorrow.

Nineteen students were selected to present at Session 3079.0 and Session 3080.0, which will be held concurrently at 10:30-11:30 a.m. (Eastern) on Monday, October 31 at the Washington Convention Center. For more on these winners, click here.
