Hello Research Rookies!!
This past week Lupe Lopez, Elaine Rodriguez, and I attended SACNAS (Society for Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science) National Science Conference in Seattle, Washington. We had the amazing opportunity to present our research projects to scientist, SACNAS staff, PH.D/ MD Doctors, graduate students, undergraduate students, and professors from the top institutions in the United States. This a life changing experience. This conference would not have been possible without the help and support of Dr. Spears, Director of the Office of Student Engagement and Experiential Learning. Thank you Dr. Spears! I would also like to thank everyone else who made this conference possible: Director of the Latino Resource Center, Dr. Emily Prieto, Office Support Associate for the Latino Resource Center, Lisa Vargen, The University Honors Program, The Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies Dr. Lisa C. Freeman, Office Support Specialist from Human Health and Sciences, Varsie Geisler, and my mentor, Dr. Sally Conklin from the College of Human Health and Sciences, ! Thank you!
