MAC-EPID's biggest events are the two symposia that it hosts every school year.

We try to direct waste from all MAC-EPID events away from the landfill by composting and recycling whenever possible. This is in fitting with the university's zero-waste program.

MAC-EPID also holds weekly meetings throughout the school year. Interested students, faculty and staff should contact Dr. Betsy Foxman ( for more information. Meetings are held online during the current pandemic.
