For the last 38 years, the students enrolled in the Application Of Epidemiologic Methods (EPI 514) course present their final projects to the Department of Epidemiology at the end of the Spring Quarter during the Super Epi 514 Results (SER) Meeting. EPI 514 gives graduate students in epidemiology the opportunity to gain experience analyzing data to answer a specific research question. This year, students analyzed datasets from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System.

Through poster sessions and oral presentations, the SER Meeting will give students an opportunity to discuss and share their findings.
