Student Research Awards - Spring 2023 Symposium

The symposium is the culminating event for students enrolled in HTH 408: Health Research Methods. This course involves student-initiated research projects that go through the Institutional Review Board (IRB) process. Working in small groups, students identify a gap in the literature and select a research methodology and instruments to answer their research question. After IRB approval, students collect, manage and analyze their data.
