Conference Participation

In June 2012, Nursing professor Trish Kiladis served as faculty mentor to nursing students Dillon Wier, Jamie Wong, January Demello, and Jason Sanchez as they participated in the 12th Biennial Symposium on Minorities, the Medically Underserved, and Health Equity sponsored by the Intercultural Cancer Council (ICC) in Houston, Texas in June 2012. They were joined by Pre-health students Lyndsey Helgeson, Kayla Balasbas, Jay-Mee-Rae Pang, Arlene Invencion and Professor Patti Lee-Robinson.

The conference was an opportunity to meet many health professionals from multiple disciplines and politicians involved in creating health care policy. While there, the nursing students presented their service learning research on the health perceptions of Hawaii residents.
