As part of this program, current and affiliated students and researchers meet bi-monthly for professional development seminars, presentations on relevant research topics, and discussions about their current projects.

This December Dr. Jennie Ohayon (a former T32 postdoc, currently at SSI) and Dr. Kristin Knox (SSI) gave a presentation to the T32 group titled, “Strategies for evaluating the impacts of a major piece of environmental legislation: What we’ve learned from studying Proposition 65.”
