ASPPH at ABRCMS

The Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) attended the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) in Seattle, WA. ABRCMS is one of the largest, professional conferences for underrepresented minority students, military veterans, and persons with disabilities to pursue advanced training in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). ABRCMS serves as a key stepping stone enhancing the scientific and professional development of young scientists. Ms. Ebony Allen, ASPPH policy analyst, was invited to give a presentation on Graduate Opportunities in Public Health and Global Health Research. Over 100 students attended the presentation where she discussed her background and career in public health and health policy. Students represented over 350 U.S. colleges and universities. During the four-day conference, over 1,700 students participated in poster and oral presentations in twelve disciplines in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, including mathematics. Ms. Allen was also asked to serve as a judge for student poster presentations in the category of Social & Behavioral Sciences and Public Health. ABRCMS is sponsored by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), Division of Training, Workforce Development, and Diversity (TWD) under award number T36GM073777 and managed by the American Society for Microbiology (ASM).
