On July 16, 2021, the Community Engagement Core of the Duke Superfund Research Center held its annual Community Advisory Board meeting, to update our community partners on what we worked on over the past year, and to get their thoughts and advise on how to improve over the next year.
As part of these meetings, we ask trainees, PhD students or postdocs doing SUperfund Center-related research, to present some of their findings to our community partners and other collaborators, and to do so in an approachable and non-technical manner.
We think they did a really great job, and because the CAB meeting was virtual this year, we are able to share these presentations more broadly. Have a look!
