The Student Research Symposium (SRS) is a public forum platform where San Diego State University (SDSU) students showcase their research and innovative academic endeavors. At the SRS, students are able to exhibit their research and art projects in the form of a poster or an oral presentation. In 2019, roughly 500 students presented their research at the symposium.
On March 1-2, 2019, the ARCHES lab presented one oral presentation and three poster presentations of current lab projects. The four research projects presented at the SRS were led by research assistants Talia Kieu, Ethan Lopez, Cameron Wadstrom, and Carrissa Wijaya. These project titles are:
- Effects of San Diego Hepatitis A Outbreak on Transitional Aged Youth Using Photovoice and Community Based Participatory Research (Talia Kieu – Oral Presentation)
- Review and Qualitative Analysis of Trans and Gender Nonconforming Experiences Within Eating Disorder Treatment (Ethan Lopez – Poster Presentation)
- Scope Review of Bear Literature and Popular Press to Address Issues of Racism and Weightism in the Community (Cameron Wadstrom – Poster Presentation)
- The Process of Piloting Youth Participatory Action Research with LGBTQIA+ Youth in Middle and High Schools (Carrissa Wijaya – Poster Presentation)
Two of our lab members, Amanda Farr and Saanjh Boyani, also presented their culminating projects for their MPH program at the SRS on The Use of Community Based Participatory Research among Queer Adolescents and Assessing the Utilization of GeneXpert MTB/RIF as a Rapid Diagnostic Tool in Mbale, Uganda respectively.
The SRS awarded Talia Kieu with the President’s Award, Ethan Lopez with the Social Justice Award, and Amanda Farr with the Librarian Award. Talia Kieu was invited to present her research project at the California State University Student Research Competition on behalf of San Diego State University.
