RIT student researchers presented their work at the RIT Research Spotlights: Health and Life Sciences event on April 11. Students from across campus participated in the second annual symposium sponsored by the RIT Health Sciences and Technology Student Association, Pre-Health Student Association, Biotechnology and Molecular Bioscience Association, the RIT Department of Psychology and the Thomas H. Gosnell School of Life Sciences. Nina Hullett, left, a senior in the nutrition management program in the Wegmans School of Health and Nutrition in RIT’s College of Health Sciences and Technology, presented a study on preventing malnutrition among elderly people at long-term facilities. Her work examined the relationship between social interactions and food consumption. After graduation, Hullett, from Hilton, N.Y., will take the next step to becoming a registered dietitian and start a dietetic internship at Pennsylvania State University.
