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

The posters selected for the APHA annual meeting include “Recruitment of Community-Dwelling Older Adults into Fall-Prevention Programs in Community Settings” by Ms. Shinduk Lee and “Thinking on Your Feet can be Productive” by Mr. Gregory Garrett.

Ms. Lee is completing a DrPH in Health Promotion and Community Health Sciences, and Mr. Garrett is completing a PhD in Environmental and Occupational Health.

“We are very pleased that both Shinduk’s and Gregory’s outstanding research can be showcased on the national scale at the APHA meeting,” said Dr. Marcia Ory, associate dean for research.

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