The 2022 Public Allied Health Symposium will be held on March 31, 2022 in the Bowen- Thompson Student Union. The event is open to BGSU faculty/staff/students and the general community.

A virtual livestream of the Keynote Address will be available. The breakout sessions will only be available in-person. 

There is no cost for attending the symposium this year.

Instead, we encourage everyone to make a donation to the Health & Human Services Leadership Council Gap Scholarship Fund. This provides annual gap scholarships, typically between $500 and $1,000, to students in need. When facing a financial hardship, this extra gap funding can often be the deciding factor that allows students the opportunity to complete their degree.
