Drawing to a Close

Only a couple more weeks more and school will be done for the summer and my wonderful LLC will be saying their final goodbyes. This semester has been awesome and I'm glad that I've been able to work with some really cool kids and learn all about their research.

This past Friday was the Undergraduate Research Symposium and the Lab Rats had the chance to present their research to judges and tell all about what they've been learning. Mesi researched the breast cancer needs and concerns of African Americans and African immigrant women, Lizzie spent time researching the barriers to prenatal care for African American adolescents, and Joe researched muscle oxygenation during exercise on motorized versus non-motorized treadmills. All of the presentations looked awesome and well put together.

Another bit of news is that the Lab Rats LLC was featured in an article on the homepage of UWM's website. The article talked about the research opportunities that the Lab Rats have and even quoted Joe and Mesi.

Finally, the end-of-semester LLC social is coming up Sunday, May 9th. We are planning to go to the Gasthaus for some delicious food at 6:30 and then head back to Sandburg to watch the new "Alice In Wonderland" in Flicks at 7:30. I'm excited and I think this will be a fun way to wrap up the year!

Well, i guess this is so long. I've had an awesome semester and the Lab Rats LLC has been great!
