VCBH Lecture Series 

Welcome to the VCBH Lecture Series. This lecture series was originally created for the greater UVM community as a way to interact and engage with top researchers in the intersectional fields we often work with at VCBH including, but not limited to, behavior change, addiction, chronic disease, and health disparities for vulnerable populations. Since COVID-19, we have moved these lectures to a webinar format and are pleased to share them with a wider audience. Look for registration information on this webpage and via our emails and social media channels. Please contact us with any questions or if you're interested in speaking.
