Students Present at Health Sciences Research Day

The Sinclair School of Nursing (SSON) was well represented at this year’s MU Health Sciences Research Day. Eight current students presented their research projects, while Poungkamon “Mew” Krisanabud received the SSON Dean’s Award for her research poster, “The Association between Symptom Severity and Physical Activity Interference among Irritable Bowel Syndrome Patients: A Pilot Study” November 9, 2017.

Each year, MU Health Sciences Research Day is organized and sponsored by the MU Institute for Clinical and Translational Science, who also partners with the School of Medicine, the SSON, the School of Health Professions and the Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans Hospital. Each school’s dean selects a student from their school to receive the Dean’s award.

Congratulations to all students who presented! A job well done!
