Congratulations to SHA's Medical Marvel team. "A Multi-faceted School-based Approach to Curb Student Vaping," written and presented at Northwell Healthcare's Feinstein Institute by sophomores Emily Cheesman, Grace Dolan, Amanda Farrell, Mary Menger and Kelly O'Neill was awarded Best Presentation by a panel of Hofstra Medical School professors, physicians and epidemiologists.
Student teams were tasked with developing a practical and cost-effective solution to end the nation's newest public health crisis - the increased use of vaping products by teens. Sacred Heart Academy's team carefully designed and effectively explained a multi-layered campaign to curb this risk to public health risk. Well done, ladies!
