Six out of the past seven consecutive years one or more Texas A&M School of Public Health Students have had research posters selected for this prestigious honor.

A captain in the U.S. Army Medical Specialist Corps, Ms. Bustillos is completing her DrPH in health promotion and community health sciences. Her winning research poster is titled, “Development and implementation of a culturally and linguistically-centered nutrition education program for promotora researchers to foster community health education and outreach in Texas border colonias”.

Earlier this spring, Ms. Bustillos won first place with her poster in the Texas A&M School of Public Health ninth Annual Research Poster Symposium and Student Poster Contest.

“We are very pleased that Brenda’s outstanding work can be showcased on the national scale at the APHA meeting,” remarked Dr. Jean Brender, associate dean for research.

This opportunity was created by Delta Omega to encourage and recognize the public health leaders of tomorrow.
