2017 Awardees

2017 Student Project Awards

In 2017, COEH was proud to award its second 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. Sign-up for the COEH List-Serve to hear about the 2017 COEH Spring Symposium where our students will present their projects.
