  • Congratulations to Priyanka Gogna (MSc Epidemiology) who won first place and the People's Choice Award in the University-wide "3 Minute Thesis" (3MT) competition! Priyanka will now go on to represent Queen's at this year's Ontario 3MT on the 19th April at York University.  Priyanka's presentation title was "When Prevention Could be the Cure".  Supervised by Dr Will King from the Department of Public Health Sciences, Priyanka talked about rather than always looking for a cure, perhaps we should be looking more at how to prevent. Congratulations are also in order for Priyanka's acceptance into the Department of Public Health Sciences PhD Epidemiology program!    (Greg Black Photography)
