The 2022 Joint Entomological Society of America, Southeastern Branch (ESA-SEB) and American Phytopathological Society (APS-CD) Meeting took place both in-person and virtually March 26-30. With the meeting being held in-person and virtually, it provided members of the organizations the flexibility to attend. Two EPP professors, Dr. Jerome Grant and Dr. Zach Hansen attended the in-person conference, which took place at the Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel & Casino in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Dr. Jerome Grant promoted “entomophagy using an entomological phenomenon: Brood x periodical cicada”. While at the conference, Dr. Grant also served as GamesMaster in the Entomology Games. He stated that the “games were wonderful, exciting and educational!” After twelve years as GamesMaster, these games were the last for Dr. Grant as he is passing the torch to someone else. Are you interested?
Dr. Zach Hansen also presented at the conference as he spoke about “meeting the needs of diverse stakeholders across Tennessee and beyond”. He even was able to capture a few photos of the city in between talks.
