Presentations

Presentations

An essential component of UMASH is direct interaction with the agricultural community, health and medical organizations, educational and research institutions, and potential partners. The purpose of this interaction is to share knowledge, translate that knowledge into action, and receive information and feedback that will expand and enhance the reach and effectiveness of the Center. As part of this outreach mission, UMASH representatives identify opportunities to present information to the community through seminars, meetings, public events, conferences, and other presentations.

If you are interested in arranging a presentation or receiving more information, please contact Ruth Rasmussen, Outreach Coordinator, at rasmu048@umn.edu or 612-625-8836.
