Research to Action Webinar and Discussion Series

How can academic science better serve the public?
How can population health research lead to better and more equitable health?
How can it motivate and inform population health action?

IAPHS empowers researchers to make their science matter. The IAPHS Research to Action Webinar and Discussion Series addresses four issues that affect population health scientists who aspire to conduct public facing science. The Webinars are free and open to all.

A few weeks after each webinar, we offer a small group discussion session on the development of related products and tools. A small fee is charged for these space-limited sessions (IAPHS members: $20 student/ $40 non-student // Non-members: student $35/ non-student $70).

All events are held virtually.
