PCD Student Research Paper Contest Deadline Approaching

Do you know an exceptional student who’s doing great work in the field of chronic disease prevention and health promotion? Preventing Chronic Disease (PCD) is currently taking submissions for its 2017 Student Research Paper Contest.

There’s still time for students to submit their research!
We are looking for high school, undergraduate and graduate students, and medical residency and recent postdoctoral fellows to submit papers relevant to the prevention, screening, surveillance, and/or population-based intervention of chronic diseases, including but not limited to arthritis, asthma, cancer, depression, diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. Papers must be received electronically no later than 5:00 PM EST on March 10, 2017.

Additional information and detailed submission guidelines are available on the PCD website at https://www.cdc.gov/pcd/announcements/2017_pcd_student_research_paper_contest.htm
