Therapeutic Recreation students presenting research at U.S. conferences

Danielle Lawless is one of the Therapeutic Recreation
students presenting research this month.
Therapeutic Recreation students from Douglas College are travelling south of the border this month to talk research.

Five 3rd-year students are presenting the results of their research projects at the National Council for Undergraduate Research Annual Conference at Eastern Washington University in Spokane.

The research covers a range of topics including helping children with disabilities, stress-reduction strategies, social needs for people with dementia and more.

The students are Danielle Lawless, Arlene Buckham, Ashley Lancz, Maggie Bosse and Jennifer Fader.

Meanwhile, three 4th-year students are presenting at the Washington State Therapeutic Recreation Association Annual Conference in Seattle.

They will be talking about how they benefitted from the experience of being research assistants as part of Imagining Inclusion, a project focused on the lives of people with mental illness.

The students are Katryna Koenig, Radka Prihodova and Suezin Kang.

Also, students Louise Joycey, Maggie Bosse and Tara Speirs are presenting research for a BC Therapeutic Recreation Association webinar.
