Department of Plant Pathology Plans Strong Participation in Annual APS Meeting
This year, the annual meeting of the American Phytopathological Society, Plant Health 2020, is entirely online (August 10-14). This will be a new experience for many of us and the department is planning strong participation in the meeting. With thanks to Professor Helen Hart and other contributors to the Helen Hart Endowment Fund, each of our graduate students was offered free meeting registration! To help our students get the most of the meeting, an informal departmental discussion of APS meeting structure, meeting highlights, tips on networking, and professional use of social media was organized by Director of Graduate Studies Jim Kurle, Incoming Director of Graduate Studies Brett Arenz, Graduate Plan Coordinator Susan Kingsbury, Communications Coordinator Grant Czadzeck, and Department Head Jim Bradeen.
