Thursday Brown Bag Series

This series features current research of members and affiliates of GHP.  The intent is to educate and raise the awareness of our community and beyond, about the research activities presently being conducted by faculty, students, researchers, and special guests of the department.

Seminars are held every Thursday from 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Brown Bag Seminars will be hosted online via Zoom.
