“We always look forward to this chance to showcase the research, scholarly work and service performed by the college’s dynamic faculty and students in its programs,” said WCHHS Dean Kenneth Cox.
The IPS&E will include 21 podium presentations and almost 80 poster presentations from graduate and undergraduate students and faculty.
