  • On Friday, Feb. 8, Mary Martinasek, visiting assistant professor of health sciences and human performance, will present, “Hooked on Hookah: An Emerging Social Smoking Trend Among College Students.”

Participants are chosen to present in the series by the provost and the Faculty Development Committee. All tenure and tenure-track faculty are eligible to propose a colloquium, and an honorarium is awarded.

These presentations are primarily intended for the UT community. Admission is free for faculty, staff and students.
