CPR Seminar Series

Selected Thursdays; 3:30-5:00 p.m.

The CPR Seminar Series includes both internal and external speakers who present findings from their latest policy-relevant research. For Syracuse University faculty, the presentations are in a workshop format: designed to provide feedback to the researchers while the work is in a formative stage. External speakers typically present research projects that are near completion. The seminar series is partially funded by the Lerner Center for Public Health Promotion.

*COVID-19: Masks Required - All students, faculty, staff and visitors (vaccinated and vaccine-exempt) accessing the Syracuse University campus must wear masks indoors at all times, and outdoors when in the presence of others. We continue to follow the advice of local public health officials in regards to in-person events. Please be sure to check back frequently for the latest safety protocols before coming to campus or other in-person venue.
