Student and Postdoc Spotlight Speaker Series

During the 2020-2021 academic year, we will be highlighting students and postdocs whose work touches on topics related to environmental injustice and/or environmental health disparities. Speakers will give brief presentations about their experience or work. There will then be ample time left for questions and open discussion about navigating this type of research as students and early career professionals. Please join us!
