PRCHN Seminar Series

The PRCHN Seminars aim to foster conversations and new collaborations, create opportunities to address health concerns, and aid in the work to achieve health equity in our communities. This year, our seminars will feature presentations by researchers and partners focused on community-engaged work that aims to improve health in historically underserved communities. We welcome all community members and organizations, CWRU staff, faculty, and students to join us via Zoom.  To view topics and videos from previous sessions, please visit here.
