Faculty Highlights

Public Health - BenU's MPH program was proud to present a dozen posters and oral presentations from students, alumni, and faculty at the 2015 APHA Annual Meeting. Here are some highlights of presentations, the BenU social event at The Gage, and the joint Illinois social event at the Chicago Cultural Center. The program now looks forward to growing more research and the opportunity to hopefully present at APHA 2016 in Denver, Colorado. Onwards and upwards!
