Infographics Symposium 2015

6Written by Kate Bishop-Williams Today was the EcoHealth Community of Interest and the KTT/KMb Graduate Student Learning Circle’s first ever Infographic Symposium! More than 70 people joined us throughout the day, with 15 presenters and 10 excellent judges! What a great networking opportunity!

The Symposium was funded primarily through a generous grant from the Student Life Enhancement Fund (SLEF), and in part also by the Centre for Public Health and Zoonoses (CPHAZ), the Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship (ICES) at the University of Guelph and the EcoHealth Community of Interest (EHCoI)- Guelph.

Fifteen graduate students representing 5 of the 6 colleges at the University of Guelph participated and presented exceptional infographics! Ten judges came to help us choose the winners (who won cash prizes!) and represented the Public Health Agency of Canada, CPHAZ, ICES, Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food (OMAF) and the private consulting sector! We were so grateful for their commitment of time and effort to this event!

Below, you can see the 2 infographics I presented, as well as the amazing organizing team (Andrea Lamarre, Megan Racey, Tylar Meeks and Ellen McDonald (not shown)) and the poster winners!

The infographics presented today will be PUBLISHED on the CPHAZ website soon, and will be invited to present at the CPHAZ Symposium in the spring!

Congratulations to all of our presenters, especially our winners! Thanks to the many people who stopped by, asked questions and voted!
