Cosgrove and Lingwall Present Work at Undergraduate Research at the Capitol Conference

Austin Cosgrove ’15 and Cailyn Lingwall ’15 recently presented research at the Undergraduate Research at the Capitol conference held in Harrisburg. Austin’s project was titled “Meadville’s Community Health Needs Assessment: A Retrospective Secondary Analysis of the ER Records.” He conducted this research last summer with Assistant Professor of Biology and Global Health Studies Becky Dawson. The project was funded by the Meadville Medical Center Foundation. Cailyn presented her senior project research, titled “An Evaluation of Physical Activity among Preschoolers at an Income-Eligible ‘Pre-K Counts’ Program in a Rural Northwest Pennsylvania Community.” Cailyn is working with Associate Professor of Environmental Science and Global Health Studies Caryl Waggett during her Senior Project. Austin’s and Cailyn’s conference travel expenses were supported by a grant to the Global Health Studies program from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
