TWU undergraduate students in the department of Health Studies Mariah Lewchuk, Karen Asay, Megan Nawrocki, and Nicole Tien will have the opportunity to present their findings on Dallas teen pregnancy rates at a state conference with the Texas Society for Public Health Education (TSOPHE), a regional professional service organization formed to promote public health across Texas.
“Presenting research findings at a state conference is a big thing for undergraduate students because they usually don’t get research opportunities,” explains TSHOPE President Laura Valentino.
As part of a project extension in their Community Health class with professor Mandy Golman, Ph.D., these four students will present their research poster entitled ‘Adolescent Pregnancy Rates in the Dallas Area’ during the 2015 TSOPHE Conference on October 23, 2015 in Austin TX.
Professor Golman is also part of a recent $4.9 million grant project that seeks to address teen birth rates in Dallas.
