Highlights from Research Day on March 21, 2019

A joint project of the DBEI and the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Penn.

Karen Glanz, PhD, MPH started off the day with her Featured Faculty Talk, “Food and Nutrition Environments: Is There an Elephant in the Room?” In addition to her informative talk, investigators from the UPenn PRC contributed two projects to the Poster Session. One features the message development and testing from our Skin Cancer Communication Project and the other highlights the methods and results from our core research project, The┬áHealthy Weigh Study.

We also enjoyed the keynote with Peter Embi, MD, MS, FASP, FACMI from Indiana University School of Medicine with his personal journey through diagnosis and treatment and how the whole health system could better serve patients.
