South Florida Students Win Big at Florida Public Health Association Conference

Last year three women from the University of South Florida College of Public of Health received awards at the Florida Public Health Association annual conference. This year two all-female student teams received research awards. The event was held in July 24-25 in Orlando, FL.

When Dr. Jaime Corvin planned her Global Health Assessment Strategies course syllabus, she could not have imagined that two student projects would evolve into award-winning research. But, that is exactly what happened resulting in two teams earning “best all-around” awards for their poster presentations.

On Tuesday, Ms. Noor Zaman, Ms. Waleska Santiago-Datil and Ms. Marissa Rickloff presented “Infertility Experiences Among College Students.”

The following day, Ms. Carson Bell, Ms. Ashleigh Blersch and Ms. Reatta Ram presented “Bullying Among Refugee Student Populations in Hillsborough County.”
