Your award helped encourage and support me and my research! This support and encouragement pushed me to continue doing research. I am currently working with the Deputy Director of the Clinical Translation Science Center of UNM's Hospital on my research. He is working with me to get it published as 1st author. I know as a Nurse Practitioner and when I'm all over the world, I will be doing research as well.

About the Project: 

Elisabeth conducted a survey of nearly 200 teenagers to determine how their internal self image and self esteem affected eating disorders, steroid use and potentially dangerous use of dietary supplements.
