When you are ready to submit drafts, simply submit them via the Group’s Google Drive folder. There will be a folder for each meeting.

2018 CSCH Encore Conference and Networking 9/24/18

The second UConn Collaboratory on School and Child Health Encore Conference will be held at the Hartford Public Library on Monday, September 24, 2018, from 4-6 p.m.

The CSCH Encore conference provides an opportunity for participants to learn about work related to school and/or child health that affiliates have presented previously at an external conference. The event will include an poster “encore” session (meaning presenters share work they have already presented in another setting) and active networking. There will be a special opportunity to participate in an on-the-spot seed grant competition. Winners at this stage will be invited to apply for seed grants for up to $8,000. Refreshments will be provided.

The event is open to all people that are CSCH affiliates (faculty, postdocs, students, community partners) by the time of the event.

For more information, contact Helene Marcy.
