2013 Penn State BIRCWH/KL2 Seminar Series

 

All those interested in the Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women's Health (BIRCWH) Program are invited to attend the seminars in our 2013 Seminar Series. The Seminar Series will be held from 12 Noon-3:00 PM monthly January through June and September through December 2013 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 2013 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.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have about the Penn State BIRCWH Program or the BIRCWH Seminar Series. We look forward to seeing all attendees of the 2013 seminars!
