Second Annual Symposium on Healthcare Engineering & Patient Safety
“As an undergraduate who is just beginning my involvement in research, the Symposium was an enriching and inspiring experience that opened my eyes to the possibilities ahead. The dedication of the current students to their various projects was obvious through their comprehensive posters and passionate presentations. The Symposium is a magnificent opportunity for everyone to see the progress and success of CHEPS from the previous year, and to get a glimpse of the promises for the future.” – Brittany Lopez, Undergraduate Industrial & Operations Engineering Student
