Dean's Day

Since 1999, Dean’s Day—Pitt Public Health’s annual showcase of student research—has hosted poster sessions during which students present their work to the multidisciplinary Pitt Public Health community.

To participate, students must prepare and submit an abstract. All students who submit abstracts give poster presentations. All currently matriculated Pitt Public Health students are eligible to compete, with the exception of the previous year’s first place master’s and doctoral winners. 

Dean's Day 2022 was a success!

Thank you for participating in our Dean's Day program and congratulations to our winners!
