Undergraduate Projects

  • Canadian Nutrition Society's 2024 Annual Conference infographic competition:

    • These infographics were created for the Canadian Nutrition Society's 2024 Annual Conference infographic competition. Infographics provide an excellent visual platform to communicate nutrition and health concepts in an efficient, easy to interpret, creative, and colourful way.  They offer an excellent opportunity to share evidence-based information with healthcare professionals working with patients, as well as to communicate directly to the public (e.g. as posters in public spaces and on social media).

    • "Chrononutrition: When should we eat?" - Infographic by Greg Moore

  • UBC-Okanagan School of Nursing Leadership Project:

    • Students from the UBC-Okanagan BSN program used the findings from the To Share or Not to Share manuscript to complete the capstone project of their nursing leadership course. They were tasked with designing a KT strategy aimed at direct care nurses. Their project resulted in a two-fold KT strategy which included the creation of a laynyard card that summarized key findings, and a whiteboard video you can check out below:

  • UBC Undergraduate Research Opportunities (URO) Research EXperience (REX) Program 2022-2023:

    • The REX Program exposes undergraduate students to the research world. Four undergraduates from the Faculty of Land and Food Systems and one from the Faculty of Science were mentored by Eleah Stringer to develop their research skills, and present at one of BC’s largest undergraduate research conferences, the Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research Conference (MURC) as well as various groups at BC Cancer.
