One Health Coffee House (BYOC)

One Health Coffee House (BYOC)

*NEW: Looking for ‘Research Bite’ speakers for upcoming OHSC Coffee House sessions!

Please fill out this survey to apply.

  • Journal Club – choose an academic paper relevant to your field of study, which ideally also touches on the One Health pillars of human, animal and environmental health and wellbeing. A link to the paper can be provided to all students in advance, and ideally students will come to the journal club ready to participate in the discussion.  
  • Research Bite – share what you’re working on! What makes it interesting and great? Is it – or could it be – One Health? Why? Include 4-5 slides outlining your research project.  

Presentations should be no more than 20 minutes in length, to leave time for 20 minutes of discussion and questions with the audience. Undergraduates and graduates are welcome to present! 

The best presentations will be informative and engaging: Think big, present boldly – and be brief! These are great, low-stress ways to engage with your fellow students ‘on-campus’, and network. We welcome all disciplines and perspectives to the One Health discussion!

Stay tuned for upcoming Coffee House events in the W22 semester!
