MSU Extension Health Research "Speed Meetings"


As the successful partnership between the College of Human Medicine and MSU Extension continues, colleagues from across campus are invited to learn more about the many health-focused education programs that MSU Extension offers to Michigan's residents throughout the state.

Extension Health Research "Speed Meetings" offer MSU faculty who conduct health research the opportunity to connect with MSU Extension educators face-to-face and explore collaboration possibilities. This two-hour, working lunch features a rapid series of 10 presentations on health programming by a variety of MSU Extension educators followed by discussion time to allow contact information to be exchanged.

Many Extension educators and specialists have years of experience working in communities, enrolling people in health interventions, and disseminating information about topics ranging from diabetes and dementia to nutrition and interpersonal relationships. This expertise and experience can be an important addition to research teams seeking external funding for research.
