HELP's Fall Research Expo: Registration Now Open!

THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL.
If you would like to be put on the waitlist please continue with your registration. We will contact you if a spot becomes available.

Join us on Wednesday, October 15 for HELP’s Fall Research Expo 2014.

We are very excited about this year’s Expo as we are focusing on the future and our new Human Development Program of Research (HDPR). The day kicks off with an overview of the HDPR by Dr. Kimberly Schonert-Reichl. The schedule is rounded out by keynote and Pecha Kucha presentations by HELP Faculty and Staff, including Dr. Lori G. Irwin, who will showcase the CHeq pilot project, and Dr. Paul Kershaw, who speak about Building Political Will for a Better Generational Deal.

In addition to presentations, and in response to feedback from past events, we have built in additional networking opportunities. Specifically, our afternoon networking session - entitled What Do You Want to Focus On? -  will allow participants to engage with presenters and ask questions and learn more about a particular topic in a smaller, less formal session.

The most important day in HELP’s annual calendar, this event is also one of our most popular. We encourage you to register now to ensure your space. View our video trailer to learn more.

This full-day event is FREE and open to the public. For more information, please contact Amy Mullis.
