CHHS Members Give 3-Minute Thesis at Research & Innovation Day

Research and Innovation Hosts 3-Minute Thesis Competition

4/21 - Since Health and Human Services Week was virtual this year, Research and Innovation hosted a Three-Minute Thesis competition on Research and Innovation Day.

The Three-Minute Thesis challenged students and faculty to present their research in just 180 seconds, in an engaging format that could be understood by an audience with no background in the research area. Presentations ranged from nature-based education and improving health using Fitbits to impacts of social distancing and gender dysphoria among college students.

Public health senior Brad Caison won the student competition with his presentation entitled “Impacts of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis on Sexual Behavior” and Public Health Assistant Professor Sasha Canan won with the faculty competition with her presentation titled “A Descriptive Cross-sectional Online Survey of Period Sex: What, How, and Who.” Both were awarded a $250 prize for most outstanding presentations.
