BIRCWH Seminar Series 2009

All those interested in the Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women's Health (BIRCWH) Program are invited to attend the seminars in our 2009 Seminar Series. The Seminar Series will be held from 12 Noon-3:00 PM monthly January through June and September through December 2009 alternating each month between the Hershey and University Park campuses. Attendance at the seminars is required for the BIRCWH Scholars. An informal networking luncheon will be held at noon with each seminar beginning at 12:30 PM. Please find below the list of 2009 BIRCWH Seminar Series dates, alternating campus locations, and seminar titles and speakers (to date). Please note that the Seminar Series will not be accessible via videoconference because we want to encourage cross-campus networking.
