Officials honored top research projects at SIU in April during annual Research Town Meeting and Fair, including work by Morris Library's Amber Burtis.

Burtis, Health Sciences librarian and master’s student in community health education and Bethany Kies, a doctoral student in health education, were awarded first place in the education category. Their project was titled “Current Trends in the Use of Social Media for Health Education and Health Promotion.”

The ninth annual Research Town Meeting and Fair will took place April 17 in the Student Center ballrooms, featuring presentations on scholarly and creative activities conducted by members of the University community. The event included dozens of poster displays, exhibits and performances, and gave their creators the opportunity to answer questions regarding their work.

Students, faculty and staff members also had the opportunity to network and enrich their work and experiences, while learning how faculty and students across campus conduct research.
