Winter ScholarSip Online

Learn how Drexel researchers systematically explored issues related to the outbreak of COVID-19 during the Libraries’ 2020/2021 ScholarSip event series.

Each (virtual) ScholarSip event will address the theme Responding to COVID-19 through Research and Scientific Problem SolvingDistinguished Drexel researchers will offer “food for thought” on COVID-19 research topics and how they have responded to the pandemic both through original research and through adapting existing procedures to address its effects on various communities. Hear from trusted experts in fields such as health management and policy, public health, infectious disease, epidemiology, and nutrition sciences.

This term, we are excited to present

Children with special health challenges are at risk for severe outcomes during disasters.

study into the content needs and preferred information sources and channels of families with Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN) during infectious disease emergencies (like the COVID-19 pandemic) and other disasters.

All Drexel faculty, professional staff, students and members of the public are invited to join us remotely for what promises to be a lively conversation with colleagues.

About ScholarSip

Now in its ninth year, ScholarSip is an annual event series hosted by the Drexel University Libraries that seeks to nurture Drexel’s intellectual life and cross-campus community through informal gatherings where faculty and professional staff exchange ideas sparked by greater awareness of interdisciplinary research. Each event includes social time to build acquaintances and a short “food for thought” presentation from a member of the Drexel community. ScholarSip provides an opportunity for members of the Drexel community to gather for conversation – along with a toast to the end of the academic term.
