More than 60 students from the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific-Northwest (COMP-Northwest) and College of Health Sciences-Northwest (CHS-Northwest) will provide poster and oral presentations of their research at the symposium from all areas including Basic Science, Clinical and Applied Research. Among the research topics to be presented are: “Preliminary Study: How Personal and Psychosocial Factors Influence Real-World Walking,” “Management of Youth Sport-Related Concussions: Survey of Parents,” “Short-term Global Outreach Clinics and Rural Free Clinics: How do Formularies Compare?” and “Understanding Patient’s Timeline of Lung Cancer Treatment.” There will be awards for first and second place in three categories (Clinical, Basic Science, and Survey research) for poster presentations. There will be first, second, third and fourth place awards for oral presentations.
“Because we are a smaller school compared to other universities, our Research Club’s goal is to showcase the amazing research that is happening at our school and to give students a platform to demonstrate their work,” said WesternU Research Club Fundraiser Coordinator and COMP-Northwest student Doan Phi. “We also wanted to take the opportunity to engage with our local community members who are huge supporters in our school and our students’ success and showcase our research to them.”
The Research Symposium will also be available to view on Zoom: https://westernu.zoom.us/j/99178978400?pwd=Nk1ncTRkdTJYcGs0eVRPMGorT2xLdz09
