29 students competed in the student poster competition. Taking first place in the medical student's poster competition was Omer Mirza, UTHSCSA, with his poster, "It Takes A Village: A Multidisciplinary Approach To A Rare Diagnosis.” Due to the outstanding quality of the posters this year, we are awarding two second-place winners. John DeMis, from UTHSCSA, placed second in the competition with poster, “Chew on this diagnosis: Gradenigos syndrome,” as did Natalie Uy, from BCM with the poster titled, “Immunoglobulin G4-related Disease: A Clinical Puzzle.” Congratulations to all of our winners and presenters in the competition.
