Thank you to our volunteers, members, sponsors, and partners who attended the April 18th Annual Meeting at the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center!
The event included poster presentations from Master of Public Health candidates from both the University of New Hampshire and Dartmouth College. For the first time, an undergraduate student from the UNH HMP program also presented a poster.
