Annual Conference

The Institute for Public Health at Washington University in St. Louis hosts an annual conference every fall.

In 2017, we will hold our 10th Annual Conference. It will feature a dynamic keynote presentation, a panel of diverse speakers, and a poster session. It will be held on Wednesday, September 27th in the afternoon starting at noon on the medical campus.

The final event of the conference will be an installation ceremony and reception for the directorship of the Institute for Public Health named in honor of Larry J. Shapiro, MD, former executive vice chancellor for medical affairs and dean of the School of Medicine. The inaugural holder of the directorship is current Institute director, Dr. William Powderly. The ceremony and reception will begin at 5 pm.

More information to come.
