Roundtable Discussions: These 30 minute small group discussions provide an opportunity to learn about new and innovative practices and to dialogue about specific health issues and programs. Three rotations of discussions will be held so that attendees can participate in more than one discussion. Details on the roundtables can be found in the program.
Share Fair Exhibit Reception: This exhibit and poster sessions showcases successful projects, programs, research and evaluation results. A dinner reception accompanies the exhibits for an evening of networking and sharing. This year we will be hosting a farewell to Dr. Karen Konzelmann, retiring CSREES National Program Leader with everyone stopping by to thank her for her 30 years of service.
Early Bird Walk & Jog: Wednesday and Thursday morning join the group for at least a 2-mile walk or jog. Evelyn Markee and Janice Shelton, University of Arizona, and Gerald Doekson, Oklahoma State University, will lead those of you who are interested in a healthy and fun way to start your day.
