Two HHS students awarded during the 2019 SURE Program Showcase

September 23, 2019

College of Education, Health, and Human Services' students Kyle Ralston and Ilham Saleh were awarded during the 2019 SURE student poster showcase held in Kochoff Hall.

Kyle Ralston, a Public Health major and Ilham Saleh, a student in Health Policy Studies walked away with two of the three awards offered during the second annual Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) poster showcase held in Kochoff Hall on September 23, 2019. This year's event included the work of 22 undergraduate students.

The UM-Dearborn SURE program sponsors undergraduate students' research with a faculty mentor across all four colleges, and provides a cohort experience for participants through a series of Lunch & Learn events. The annual research showcase is an opportunity for undergraduate students who participate in the SURE Program to share the results of their research with the campus and gain valuable presentation skills, but it is also a competition in which the attendees vote for their favorites in three categories: Most Intriguing, Best Presentation, and Best Poster.

Kyle Ralston presented a poster in which he examined the Impact of Trauma on Economic and Labor Market Opportunity in Detroit. He was mentored by Dr. Jessica Camp, Assistant Professor of Social Work. Kyle's poster won the Best Presentation award.

Ilham Saleh performed an evaluation of the Dearborn Environmental Health Research-to-Action (EHRA) youth summer academy. She was mentored by Dr. Natalie Sampson, Assistant Professor of Public Health. Ilham's poster won the Best Poster award.

Both CEHHS students were presented with a certificate and a gift card by Yi Lu Murphey, Interim Vice Provost for Research.
