Summer Student Program

On April 19, 2013, Dr. Saunders traveled to Spelman College for their 2013 Student Research Day. She served as a judge for the public health oral presentations and was able to observe the types of research activities going on throughout the campus. Over the past 3 years, the Longevity after Injury Project has taken summer undergraduate research students from Spelman College, and we hope to continue that collaboration. Dr. Saunders also met with Dr. Rosalind Bass, whom we have been collaborating with through a supplement of our Capacity Building Grant (CHORCUP). --View photo--
