Texas A&M Health Science Center (TAMHSC) School of Rural Public Health students were named finalists  in the 6th Annual Ergonomics Design Competition sponsored by eTools, a product of Auburn Engineers, Inc. The team consisting of students from the Environmental and Occupational Department, Lauren Barnard, Angela Marsalia, Bobby Dahaghi, and Daniel Yang, competed against 32 other graduate school teams from across the globe.

All teams were trained in eTools™, an ergonomic job analysis software developed by Auburn Engineers, Inc. Students then used eTools™, as well as knowledge gained through their academic training and applied experience, to evaluate and create a solution to the ergonomic dilemmas posed in the semester long competition.
