MSc success at the CSEB National Student Conference
Several of the Department's MSc and PhD students attended the Canadian Society for Epidemiology & Biostatistics conference at McMaster University on May 10, 2014. Attendees had the opportunity to take part in poster and oral presentations.
First year MSc student, Eleanor Hung (photo), came in second place out of over 100 for her poster presentation titled “The effect of shift work on cortisol production in female hospital employees”. Eleanor said of the event “CSEB was a great opportunity to meet new people, and to learn about what other epidemiology students are doing across Canada. It was a great opportunity to represent Queen’s, and I’m thrilled that our project received recognition!".
The success in the event continued when second year MSc student, Asha Mohammed, finished in third place for her oral presentation titled “Sociodemographic Variation in Exposure to Fast Food Restaurants and Fast Food Consumption”. Both Eleanor and Asha received a trophy, a cash prize of $100, and will have their abstracts published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.
