At UNM's Shared Knowledge Conference, held April 9 and 10 in the Student Union Building, graduate student Diondra Maestas received first place and received $1,000 in the SKC 180 competition.  Undergraduate student Aaron Padilla received third place for his oral presentation.  Both students are mentored by Dr. Phyllis Palmer and work with her in the Voice and Swallowing Lab.

The 2014 Shared Knowledge Conference (SKC) is a regional event planned and hosted by students and partners of the University of New Mexico. Intent on celebrating diversity, multiple forms of research, and scholarly endeavors, we encourage presentations covering a range of formats and topics. The goal of the conference is to provide an opportunity for students from a variety of academic institutions and disciplines to share their scholarship, gain access to new ideas, and develop their professional leadership skills. Congratulations, Diondra and Aaron!
