As I am in Argentina at the moment I was forced to experience the success of our VCU MIDPH and Honduras Research team vicariously.
Congratulations to our two stellar medical students, Jaclyn Arquiette and Audrey Le.
Both were standout Honduras 2012 medical team members, researchers and now, scholars.
Ms. Arquiette studied the efficacy of our water filtration systems in La Hicaca and environs while Ms. Le surveyed the perceived impact of indoor air pollution in Honduran homes.
Both demonstrated exceptional initiative, drive and organizational skills to complete the projects from start to finish in a relatively short time frame.
Today each formally presented their work at Virginia Commonwealth University.
Both have prepared abstracts, to be submitted for the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 2012 annual meeting.

Each is working on their respective manuscripts, to be submitted for publication later in the year.
