College at Brockport CSTEP Scholars presented Summer Research projects at the 20th Annual McNair Scholars Research Conference

University of Maryland, Baltimore County, September 21-22, 2012

This September, two more College at Brockport CSTEP scholars, Hugo Avalos (BIO) and Myriam Louis (HLS), presented their 2012 Summer Research projects at the 20th Annual McNair Scholars Research Conference at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

Avalos’ presentation involved determining what factors, if any, impede adequate quality of health care for Hispanics. It included a survey questionnaire distributed to approximately 120 participants from two distinct social venues to collect a range of responses. Louis’ presentation focused on predictors of, and barriers to, success for future nursing students through an extensive literature review that also aimed to understand the process that individuals go through to become a nurse.

The theme of the conference was “Providing a Path to the PhD for 20 Years and Counting.” In addition to presenting their projects, the scholars attended a Graduate Schools Fair and networked with scholars from Trinity University, Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and many other prestigious universities. The conference culminated in a banquet with an inspiring keynote address by Dr. Charles F. Robinson, II, Vice Provost of UMBC Diversity Affairs.
