USD Social Work Students Win Research Poster Competition at University of Memphis Symposium
The Memphis symposium drew social work student teams, practitioners and scholars from a variety of universities and colleges. There were 34 presenters at the symposium, and five were USD undergraduates.
The winning research-poster team from USD consisted of Jessilyn Bean, Mekko Bear Killer, Brittany Two Elk, and Maggie Malathip. Their research and poster focused on family cultures, and it compared self-reported family cohesion and conflicts contrasting Native American and rural white families. This is the third consecutive year that the outstanding student research poster was presented by a student research team from USD.
USD sent four teams of social work undergraduates to the symposium for the poster presentations. Funding for the trip was provided by the Council for Undergraduate Research and Creative Scholarship and the USD Department of Social Work.
