Many of you had to quickly adjust your research methods and defend your dissertation or thesis via Zoom — likely not how you imagined wrapping up your time at Oregon State. But you dug deep and made it happen!

Your tenacity and flexibility, in combination with your hard-earned degree, will undoubtedly improve lifelong health and well-being for all.

The CPHHS faculty and staff would like to say congratulations! Watch their video messages.
