Seminar Program
Purpose:   This program is intended to strengthen the Chapters’ role in accomplishing the mission of the APS. It is designed to intensify a chapter’s activities in the areas of local outreach, communication and networking, collaboration and expansion, and public affairs.  This program will help establish linkages between schools (K-12 schools, two-institutions, and four-year colleges and universities) and members of the Iowa Physiological Society.  Under this program school officials and/or science teachers and professors can identify a member of the IPS to give either a teaching lecture or seminar in their area.  This accomplishes the goal of bringing science and a passion and enthusiasm for science to youth and to students considering careers in this area.  Please use the resources listed below to participate in this program.
