CPHI’s yearly seminar series highlights the research and expertise of CPHI Fellows, as well as local and national leaders. Many of our seminars pair an academic researcher with a practice professional to bridge the science with actionable steps to improve population health.    

Lunch is provided. Please check back as updates are made to our 2019/2020 Seminar schedule.

The CPHI seminars have been cancelled for the rest of Spring 2020 in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. We hope to reschedule many of our speakers for fall.
