Fall 2020 Seminar Series
Structural Racism and Career Development
The AHRQ NRSA seminar series is held every Monday of the academic calendar year and is primarily for the pre- and postdoctoral trainees in the AHRQ NRSA fellowship at the Sheps Center. The seminars are made up of a combination of trainees presenting their work in progress and guest speakers presenting on a topic relevant to the theme of each semester. While this seminar is for the trainees, they are open to anybody who would like to attend.
