A question and answer session will follow the research presentations. Students are strongly encouraged to attend
“In addition to strengthening students’ critical thinking skills, our hope is to generate excitement and interest in a discipline, to show students how research impacts policy making, and to demonstrate how researchers engage people in meaningful action,” said Dr. Yakini.
