UIC SPH Celebrates its 9th Annual Student Research

Banner of Annual Student Research Day

On April 8, 2014, the UIC School of Public Health held its 9th Annual Student Research and Practice Awards Day.  This event is held each year during National Public Health Week and honors students whose research addresses a variety of critical public health issues. 

Undergraduate, Master’s level and Doctoral level students displayed their research, which ranged in topic from disaster risk reduction in Haiti to heat stress prevention among farmworkers in the United States.  Most students were on site to present their work to a panel of judges, fellow classmates, faculty, alumni and other members of the SPH community.  Other students presented remotely via Adobe connect as part of their distance education program. Many thanks to our awards ceremony keynote speaker, Dr. Jennifer Hebert-Beirne, Assistant Professor in Community Health Sciences. Dr. Hebert-Beirne’s speech was entitled: “Understanding Community Health in Chicago's Little Village: Using a Community-based, Participatory, Iterative Research Approach to Health Equity Assessment”

SPH would like to congratulate these students who were the recipients of the following awards.  We wish them the best of luck as they continue in their practice and research.
