Professional Engagements

The Center's outreach and education activities include lectures and presentations in classroom as well as presentations to non-academic health care providers, community groups and the general public. Scientific papers in journals are also a part of this educational outreach.

In addition, news conferences, tv appearances and media interviews are a way in which we engage the broader community. We will include additional links below as they become available.
