Winners of Resident/Medical Student Poster Competition Announced

Resident Winners
The Resident/Medical Student Poster Competition is an APA Annual Meeting tradition that allows residents and medical students to attend the meeting, present their research, and be recognized for quality work. Eligible participants can submit abstracts for posters in five categories: Clinical Case Studies, Psychosocial and Biomedical Research Projects, Patient-Oriented Care and Epidemiology, Community Development and Service Projects, and Curriculum Development and Educational Projects. Submitted abstracts are evaluated by a panel of judges. All submitted posters are presented at the Annual Meeting, and winners receive a medal and bragging rights for themselves and their institutions.

This year’s winners were Michael Nakhla, M.D., for "What I Think I Look Like: A Photographic Study of Perceived Body Image in Patients With Eating Disorders"; Zelde Espinel, M.D., for "Global Mental Health Outreach, Screening, and Intervention for Highly Traumatized Colombian Women Victims of the Armed Conflict"; Sebastian Cisneros, M.D., for "Cortisol Response to the Trier Social Stress Test and Variability in Suicidal Ideation"; Amber Mansoor, M.D., for "Mental Health and HIPAA in Today’s World of Social Media and Smart Phones"; and LaCasse Matthew, D.O., for "Heavy Metal Psychosis: Not the Music."
