CLS students to present poster at national conference

Congratulations to Natalie Harmon and Megan Gunderson!

Their abstract, “An Interprofessional Guide to Laboratory Testing for Student Run Free Clinics: Reference Guide to Sexually Transmitted Infection Diagnostics and Monitoring,” was accepted for a poster presentation at the Society of Student-Run Free Clinics (SSRFC) conference to be held Feb 7-8, 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Natalie and Megan will be developing a reference guide, which will include explanations of frequently utilized diagnostic tests for STIs.  The intent of this project is to foster interprofessional knowledge and communication between professions and within the clinics.

Nicely done, Natalie and Megan!
