This series of very brief presentations by some of our outstanding faculty introduces you to the very diverse, exciting  and highly interdisciplinary field of public health. We hope you will be able to attend some or all of these talks, however, given time constraints and the many competing events of this busy first day, we understand that you may only be able to attend a select few presentations.  Please come to those talks that fit your schedule and remember this is only the first part of a very busy and challenging year.  These faculty will introduce you new ideas and new ways to think as they introduce you their special area of public health.
