Research posters by students at the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Rural Public Health (SRPH) were selected for the Delta Omega National Honorary Society research poster presentation at the American Public Health Association (APHA) annual meeting, Oct. 27-31 in San Francisco.

A total of 19 research posters were chosen nationwide for this distinction.

Graduate students Mayura Shinde and Ann Vuong’s poster on “Prenatal Exposure to Nitrosatable Drugs, Vitamin C, and Risk of Selected Birth Defects,” and Courtney Nalty’s poster on “Using Multilevel Modeling to Compare Food Security Changes over Time and Seasons among Mother Child Dyads Living in South Texas Colonias” were selected for highlighting at the APHA annual meeting.

“We are very pleased to have two of our students’ posters accepted this year for the Delta Omega student poster session at APHA,” said Jean Brender, Ph.D., associate dean of research. “The posters showcase studies for which Ms. Nalty, Shinde and Vuong took the lead and were part of SRPH research projects funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Healthy Eating Research Program and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.”

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