The 2019 ReBUILDetroit Professional Development Day took place Saturday, September 14, at Wayne State University. Previously titled “Fall Research Day” Professional Development Day allows scholars an opportunity to present their faculty-mentored research, engage in workshops and interact with industry professionals such as Riana Elyse Anderson, Ph.D. The 2019 plenary speaker, Riana Elyse Anderson, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Behavior and Health Education at the University of Michigan’s School of Public Health. Anderson’s unique path in research resonated well with the scholars in attendance.
