Grad students Daniel, Kristen, and Lauren have been selected for the Graduate Student Research Mentorship Program. A specific objective of the program is to promote opportunities for students to work closely with a faculty mentor in developing a paper for presentation at an academic conference and/or for publication. General goals are to facilitate close working relationships between faculty and students during the early stages of graduate education, to promote timely degree progress, and to encourage creative scholarship and research productivity.
Daniel looks forward to using this funding to conduct research on the relationship between race and vegetarianism. Through the GSRM fellowship, Kristen will complete a manuscript examining the relationship between weight stigma and disordered eating. On this fellowship, Lauren will be preparing a manuscript looking at the effects of food insecurity and stress-mediated comfort eating.
Congratulations again Daniel, Kristen, and Lauren!
