What is Blue Plate Research?

Blue Plate Research is an event series from Utah State University that is focused on sharing easy-to-understand well-being research with Utah health advocates, statewide stakeholders, and the public.

What is the series like?

The events will be hosted virtually, with a presentation on YouTube that features our presenters sharing their research and how it's applicable to the everyday lives of people in Utah, followed by a live question and answer session with those presenters hosted on Zoom. The presentation portion will be between 20-30 minutes, while the panel will run anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.

Why should I attend?

Health and well-being is a top issue of concern among Utah citizens and leaders, but finding reliable perspectives on these key issues can be challenging. As the state's only land-grant institution, Utah State University has a mandate and responsibility to share data-driven discoveries with the general public. At Blue Plate Research you'll receive tools and insights on Utah's health and well-being that aren't overly-hyped and marketed, but are real and usable.
