Health Studies Student Wins Research Competition on Aging

Health Studies student Lily Ren took tops honours in an undergraduate research competition sponsored by the National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly (NICE). Lily is also the Vice-President of the Health Studies Students' Union. Her project looked at the incidence of hip fractures in seniors who are prescribed benzodiazepine, with a focus on those living in community dwellings and long-term care facilities.

This marks the second year that a Health Studies student has taken the first place.
