Each week, the CSDE Seminar Series brings top demographers and population health scientists from around the world to a classroom near you. These events boast free admission and a variety of formats–check out the sidebar to learn more about each! For more information or to learn how you can get involved with the Seminar Series, please feel free to contact the Seminar Series Chair, Peter Catron. CSDE seminars are held weekly on Fridays from 12:30-1:30pm during the academic year. Speakers provide their research insights during the first 35 minutes and the audience has time for Q&A during and following their talk.
