Presented by the Stephens College School of Health Sciences
In light of the coronavirus and our efforts to abide by the CDC guidelines, we are working to develop an online platform for presentations and speakers. More information coming soon.
Stephens College, a leader in health sciences education, welcomes all those interested in the sciences and health sciences to our spring research conference. Students and faculty in Stephens’ undergraduate and graduate programs will share their research in a wide range of specialties. Join us to:
