March 30, 2010

Dana Hanson-Baldauf, SILS doctoral candidate, has been awarded first place for her poster presentation in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Graduate School's 12th Annual Graduate Student Recognition celebration. Her poster, "Exploring the Everyday Life Information Practices, Needs, and Challenges of Young Adults with Intellectual Disabilities," was selected in the "Best Graduate Student Poster in the Social Sciences and Humanities" category.

"We are delighted that Dana's work has been recognized by the Graduate School through this distinguished program," said Dr. Barbara B. Moran, interim dean and professor. "Sharing the results of outstanding research with the broader community is important for students. Being recognized in this way is clearly an honor for Dana and for SILS."

Hanson-Baudauf will receive a monetary gift and formal recognition during the Graduate Student Recognition Day on April 8th.
