The annual forum takes place at the UGA Center for Continuing Education and focuses on women in scientific fields because they are, traditionally, an underrepresented group.
Note that the Global Educational Forum continues on March 31 with a special presentation from invited speaker Henrietta Ukwu, physician and senior vice president for global regulatory affairs at Otsuka Pharmaceutical., She will speak at 3:30 p.m. in Mahler Hall on ""Regulatory Science–Role in Pharmaceutical Medicine and Global Impact."
The mission of the Global Educational Forum is to provide faculty and students an opportunity to share their research, teaching and service activities as contextualized within UGA's diverse academic disciplines. The forum brings together faculty from within the campus of the University of Georgia and from outside to discuss research and teaching activities in global context. Graduate and undergraduate students get the opportunity to share their research studies and educational experiences as connected to diverse disciplinary knowledge.
Poster session time is 2-3:15 p.m. March 19. Students must put up their posters between 8:00 AM and 9:30 AM, and remove them by 6:00 PM. Please plan to be by your poster at least five minutes before 2:00 PM. Poster presentation is from 2:00-3:15 PM. Make sure your poster has an abstract that contains a purpose, method, results and conclusions if data-based, or has an objective, procedures, thematic perspectives and implications if not data-based. A poster is preceded by an abstract of not more than 250 words. Key terms used in the paper are listed immediately below the abstract.
Poster presenters will receive a certificate of participation.
