The CCHSA seminar is a weekly lecture delivered by invited speakers on Tuesdays from 2:30-3:30 during the school term.

Topics include current issues in agricultural and rural health research and practice.  Seminar speakers include those affiliated with CCHSA, with other departments at U of S, and visitors to the university such as those from other institutions or government.  We encourage presentations from students, researchers, Centre staff, and practitioners.  The 30 to 40-min presentation format emphasizes discussion of topics and encourages participant interaction with speakers.

Seminars are held in James Dosman Boardroom (E-wing 1254).

If you would like to present at the seminar or nominate another presenter, please contact the seminar coordinators Debra Morgan and  Julie Kosteniuk.
