The title of her thesis is “Influenza-Preparedness: Modeling Influenza-Associated Deaths and Hospitalizations in Texas.”

“Kelsey’s thesis was selected through a peer review process,” said Chuck Huber, Ph.D., assistant professor at the HSC-School of Rural Public Health and thesis chair. “SER is one of the top epidemiology conferences in the United States, so this is quite an honor for Kelsey.”
