2016 Awardees

2016 Student Project Awards

In 2016, COEH was proud to award its first round of student projects. Students proposed research projects in occupational or environmental health to be conducted under the advising of COEH and affiliated faculty. Teaching, service, community intervention, and policy projects were also considered, with the purpose being to encourage MS and Doctoral students to work in teams with students from other disciplines in order to better address real world problems.

We congratulate these outstanding scholars. Learn more about their projects by viewing their posters below.
