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.

Seminars take place on the third Thursday of each month from 12-1:30pm. Lunch is provided. Please check back as updates are made to our 2018/2019 Seminar schedule.
