Parental Seminar Series

Please Note: The Parental Seminar Series will be held virtually.

The Aetna Health Professions Partnership Initiative’s Parental Seminar Series is an opportunity for students and parents to learn more about the college admissions process and important health issues affecting their community. Parents are asked to submit a survey on the topics they are most interested in learning about and the series of lectures are then tailored to their needs. Each academic year, UConn Health’s Department of Health Career Opportunity Programs invites college admissions personnel, physicians, dentists, and other health professionals to speak to the parents and students on college admissions and various health topics such as hypertension, asthma, stress management, diabetes, obesity, and nutrition. The scheduled seminars occur approximately twice per semester on a weekday evening from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at UConn Health in Farmington.
