SER is committed to increasing the diversity of its membership and supporting an inclusive environment for everyone. We strive to promote the inclusion of faculty and students from diverse backgrounds, geographic areas, beliefs and orientations. Our new large-scale initiative, SER Visits, was developed with this mission in mind. SER Visits will engage epidemiologists and epidemiologists-in-training in the Society by having highly regarded SER researchers visit a diverse range of institutions. As a part of the visit:
The SER researcher will be give an interactive presentation in their area of expertise and meet with students, fellows, and junior faculty—in groups and one-on-one.
Students will be eligible to apply for a SER Travel Scholarship specifically designated for students at SER Visits institutions to travel to and attend the annual SER meeting. Applications for the SER Travel Scholarship will be made available to students in the weeks leading up to the visit.
Travel Scholarships are sponsored by Columbia University Department of Epidemiology
