The poster session is one of my favourite aspects of the ArcticNet Annual Scientific Meetings, and this year was no exception. Of all the conferences that I have participated in, the ArcticNet poster session is among the best attended and most engaging poster sessions.
Our research group had a number of posters presented at this conference, showcasing work that ranged from climate change impacts on mental health and wellbeing, to community-based climate-health monitoring, to place-attachment and maternal health, to caribou documentaries, to one-health projects.
Members from our research group were awarded 1st and 2nd place in the Graduate Student Poster Competition! Congratulations David and Alexandra for your 1st and 2nd place win (respectively)!
