Learn and Lunch

HHS Learn and Lunch Program

HHS researchers are taking Giant Leaps to improve lives in Indiana and around the globe. Please join us for one or more HHS Learn and Lunch presentations during Purdue’s 150th Anniversary yearlong celebration and discover just a few of the ways HHS researchers are working to enhance human health and wellbeing across the lifespan.

HHS Learn and Lunch presentations include a complimentary boxed lunch and a 45-minute presentation. All presentations are open to the public; however, advanced registration is required. 

The HHS Learn and Lunch Program is supported in part by the HHS Alumni Board. The College of Health and Human Sciences is grateful for the Board’s significant contribution to this program.
