A group of students approached Human Development and Family Studies faculty member, Dr. Sherwood Burns-Nader, with an interest in participating in research. With guidance from her, these students completed a research project focused on children. Their abstract was selected for presentation at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research held at Kennesaw State University this spring.
Each of the five students conducting research were involved in UA’s Emerging Scholars program. Three are focusing on the CHES Child Life concentration and two are biology majors. All continued to participate in research in the lab after having completed the Emerging Scholars program.
What did they investigate – the effectiveness of a non-invasive pain relief product called Buzzy. Their abstract says it all:
Congratulations to these emerging researchers: Amber Wesoloski of Moon Township, Penn., Emily Goldstein of Santa Clarita, Cal., Shannon Anderson of Mobile, Ala., Molly Lukas of Lakeland, Tenn., and Lily Small of Fairhope, Ala.!
