Research Week 2017 is less than a month away, and we need your help! Each year, volunteers play a critical role in in making Research Week a success. Anyone at OHSU can volunteer. It’s a great opportunity to meet people from other areas and gain an understanding of the scope and quality of the research conducted every day at OHSU. There are a number of ways volunteers can help:
- Check-in desk
As a Check-in Desk volunteer, you are tasked with greeting attendees and checking in presenters.
- Poster wrangler
It’s the Poster Wrangler’s job to see that posters are put up in the right locations.
- 3MT ballot collector
Help collect the audience ballots for the “People’s Choice Award” at the end of the Three Minute Thesis competition on Wednesday, May 3.
- Moderator/backup moderator
Every oral presentation session will be assigned two volunteers: One Moderator and one Backup Moderator. Moderators are needed to ensure that the pace of the oral presentation sessions are maintained, keeping presenters to their 10-minute time limit.
Go to the Research Week 2017 volunteer website to see what shifts are available and to sign up to be a volunteer. Remember, you can choose as many shifts as you’d like!
