PhD student Rachel Curtis wins first place student presentation award at AAVP

Rachel Curtis delivered an excellent oral presentation of her Chagas disease research at the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists meeting.  The meeting was held in Chicago, IL, July 20-23.  Rachel was awarded the AAVP-Bayer Best Student Paper Presentation Award, which includes a certificate, monetary award, and free registration at next year's meeting.  Rachel presented results on the infection prevalence and genetic strain diversity of the Chagas disease parasite in kissing bug and wildlife samples she's collected across the state, many of which resulted from her expansive Citizen Science Initiative.  Way to go, Rachel!
