FCIC Trainee, Angela Makris, presents at the AUCD 2018 Conference in Washington D.C.

Angela Makris, a trainee with FCIC, completed her Master's in Public Health with a concentration in Social Marketing from USF in December 2018. As part of her research she presented a poster at the AUCD 2018 conference this past November. Her poster, Social Marketing interventions to Primary Care Physicians to Decrease Health Disparities for Patients with a Disability in a Primary Care Setting: A Scoping Review, was received with great enthusiasm for its line of inquiry and innovative thinking around the topic of application of a systems approach to social and behavioral theory for person-centered health behavior change, prevention and wellness for people with disabilities. She was sponsored by FCIC to attend the conference and was mentored by FCIC's Associate Director, Dr. Elizabeth Perkins. View a video of the poster presentation.
