Research Poster Winners

Research Poster Winners with Dean Burdine & Dr. Brender.

Research posters by students at the Texas A&M Health Science Center (TAMHSC) School of Rural Public Health (SRPH) were selected for the Delta Omega National Honorary Society research poster presentation at the American Public Health Association annual meeting, Nov. 2-6, 2013 in Boston.

A total of 19 research posters were chosen nationwide for this distinction, three of which will be presented by TAMHSC-School of Rural Public Health students.

“Each spring, our school hosts a student research poster contest from which the winners of the top three posters are invited to submit their abstracts for consideration at the Delta Omega National Honorary Society poster session,” said Jean Brender, Ph.D., R.N., associate dean for research. “We are really excited that all three poster submissions were accepted to this national poster session, a ‘first’ for our school.”

The posters selected for the APHA annual meeting include “Assessment of Knowledge, Attitudes, and Behavior Following a Pesticide Education Intervention in Webb County, Texas” by Jennifer Ross, M.S.; “Sex Related Differences in Cigarette Smoking Disclosure and Serum Cotinine Levels” by Niel Dalal, M.B.B.S.; and “Factors associated with self-reported barriers to colonoscopy among low-income/underserved patients in a family medicine setting” by Chinedum Ojinnaka, M.B.B.S.
