Anaya Stenson joined our program her Freshman year of college in 2022. Since then, she has made incredible strides within her research in the behavioral sciences division. Anaya’s research focused on the different types of school systems and SES to find how those differences can impact functioning in African-American kindergarteners. She works alongside Dr. Nayena Blankson of Spelman College in the Psychology division. She set a goal for herself to give her all during her presentation and did just that!
The RISE Program congratulates you for your achievement during the ABRCMS Conference in Phoenix, Arizona!
RISE Scholars had the opportunity to attend the Annual Biomedical Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) 2023 Conference, November 15-19. ABRCMS continues to be one of the largest communities of underrepresented minorities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Students attend this conference to present their research, enhance professional development skills, explore graduate schools, and network. RISE is honored to have attended ABRCMS on their return to in-person presentations this year and we congratulate each incredible win along with the other bright RISE Scholars who presented!
