UW College of Health Sciences Students, Faculty Present Research

For the first time, the University of Wyoming College of Health Sciences Research Day was held virtually April 15, but this in no way lessened the excitement of both student and faculty presenters in highlighting their research projects, using prerecorded and live poster displays and oral presentations.

“Over the past 12 months, the pandemic has hampered our research efforts, especially involving human subjects,” Dean David Jones says. “However, our faculty and students and the College of Health Sciences research committee have shown determination to keep going and to make an impact.”

Research in health and wellness is more important now than ever, says Jones, noting the extent to which the COVID-19 virus has disrupted life for the people of Wyoming.

After the Research Day virtual event, each presentation was reviewed based on content, quality and relevance to current health issues. A limited number of presentations received monetary awards that will go toward furthering research and travel funding.
