MPH Student Presents at USF Health Research Day

Evan Hegarty, an MPH student in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics in the College of Public Health, was selected to deliver an oral presentation at the USF Health Research Day on Friday, February 28th. The presentation, Mediator/Moderator Analysis of Latino STYLE: Parent-Child Communication and Other Factors Influencing the Efficacy of a Randomized, Controlled Trial of an Adolescent HIV Intervention, was based on his MPH Special Project, supervised by Celia Lescano, Wei Wang, and Humberto Lopez Castillo. In addition, his poster presentation, based on this same work, was selected as one of the 10 best posters among the more than 70 posters presented by COPH undergraduate and graduate students and post-docs. Mr. Hegarty has completed his Field Experience and Special Project in the Department of Mental Health Law and Policy and is currently working on an Independent Study to analyze more data, using survival curve analyses, related to Dr. Lescano's NIMH-funded R01 study, A Randomized Controlled Trial of Family-based HIV Prevention for Latino Youth (MH R01 087232).
