The Department of Health Behavior hosts occasional talks on topics of interest to faculty, researchers, and students. Cross-disciplinary exchanges create new ways of looking at the world and new solutions to pressing public health problems. Join the conversation! At this lively forum, presenters may formally present research findings, get feedback on work in progress, or practice a talk they have been invited to give elsewhere. We invite you to attend these colloquia by departmental faculty, graduate students, and visiting scholars.
 
In the fall we were fortunate to have colloquia by Paschall Sheeran, PhD of the UNC-CH psychology department, the founders of Counter Tools (HB faculty member Kurt Ribisl, PhD and current doctoral student Allison Myers, MPH), and faculty member Wizdom Powell Hammond, PhD.
