CPR Seminar Series
426 Eggers Hall, Selected Thursdays; 3:30 p.m.- 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.
