Here are the winners of the 2023 Health Disparities and Social Justice Poster Competition
Five researchers across education and training levels won awards at Pitt’s Health Disparities and Social Justice Poster Competition. The University’s six schools of the health sciences as well as the Schools of Social Work and Education and the Department of Psychology were represented at the March 30 event.
Faculty reviewed abstracts on research on health disparities and social justice and selected students and trainees to present in one category — bachelors, masters, doctoral, first professional or postdoctoral fellow — based on experience. Posters were judged for originality, significance to the author's field, representation of the poster, research methods, visual impact and presentation skills. The winners received cash prizes.
