The day two third-year students took first place at an internal medicine conference

Third-year students Daniel Bennion and Justin Richey won the student poster competition at the 8th Annual “Medical Students’ Steps to Success Meeting” in Bethesda, Md. They bested 45 other entrants from regional schools including Johns Hopkins, Georgetown, Maryland, George Washington and Howard Universities. Bennion and Richey’s winning clinical case abstract proposed a new mechanism by which the Epstein-Barr Virus triggers Human T-Cell Lymphoma.

An additional three students presented posters at the conference: second-year student Joseph D. Roderique, and first-year students Todd Teigeler and Kai Li.

The student conference was hosted by the Internal Medicine Interest Groups from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in conjunction with local chapters of the American College of Physicians.
