Annual USC Science and Health Communication Student Symposium a Success
Eight USC students who are interested in Science and Health Communication research and practice made presentations at the annual Science and Health Communication Student Symposium March 25. These eight students were undergraduate, masters and doctoral students from across USC’s campus.
This event was sponsored by USC’s Science and Health Communication Initiative, an interdisciplinary initiative that encompasses two areas—a Research Group that focuses on strengthening collaborative research among various schools, colleges and relevant institutes at USC and a Certificate of Graduate Study in Health Communication.
