Capstone Projects

All CGH concentrators complete a substantial project focusing on the health of human populations. The project may reflect a significant civic engagement experience, a major research project, or a hybrid of the two.  Students present their projects to the college community during a poster session held each Spring.  Below you will find examples of the projects students have completed recently.  Guidelines for the capstone projects are available here.
