UNCP RISE goes to Indy! Fellows Attend and Present at  ABRCMS 2018. 

This year fourteen RISE Fellows and two staff members attended ABRCMS 2018 in Indianapolis, IN.  We had eight students present research (one oral presentation: Kaitlan Smith, and seven poster presentations: Josh Cade, Cheyenne Lee, Dakota Lee, Dontae Mosley, Jazlyn Pointer, Fredejah Royer, Victoria Spencer). As usual ABRCMS was a hit! Lots of giveaways and good connections. See you next year in San Francisco, ABRCMS!
