The PNR has two upcoming webinars this month. The first is PNR Partners which showcases our PNR funded recipients. Thursday, November 12th at 1pm Pacific Time (noon Alaska Time, 2pm Mountain Time), we have Shelley Dougherty, Executive Director for Oregon Pacific AHEC who will tell us about her project, Environmental Health Connection for Rural Oregon Schools, that engaged middle school students in the world of scientific inquiry to create healthier communities and prepare them academically as they explored career options. We also will have Jackie Wirz, Research Data Specialist at Oregon Health & Science University who will present information about the Pacific Research Data Symposium where researchers, students, and librarians shared their work in the world of data.
