Speed Networking Events for SIUE Researchers: The Science of Intervention

Friday, February 20, 2015, 9:00 - 10:30, MUC International Room

Practice your 3-minute “elevator speech” as you participate in a fast-paced, fun event meant to expose you to the research on campus and inspire you to establish new, productive relationships. Researchers will share their topics in an accelerated fashion with a group of researchers sharing similar interests.

Interested attendees must R.S.V.P. to one of the following events. Seats are limited. Some preparation required—an inquiring mind and willingness to talk to others are a must!

The Science of Intervention

For educators, health workers, social workers, artists, and inventors, theoretical viewpoints have their limits when trying to understand the true problems experienced by students, patients, subjects and projects. Studies are needed on the most pragmatic approaches, tools and interventions used in our everyday practice. Researchers are interested in intervention studies measure the impact of applied models, study instruments, methods, techniques and outreach strategies. Disciplines interested in intervention studies may include: clinical nursing, pharmacy practice, social work, sociology, public policy, education, engineering, and others.
