Diva Agarwal, '18, recently presented at the Empowerment for Life: Native American Youth Conference at NorthStar. The topic of her presentation was "How Lower Socio-Economic Status Relates to Higher Sexually Transmitted Disease Rates in Nebraska." This study was based on research she completed at the Creighton University Summer Institute. Diva worked with a mentor from the North Omaha Area Health Clinic and then presented her findings in August along with 11 student researchers from all across the country. Diva received second place recognition for her research and presentation. She was then asked to present at the Native American Youth Conference. She has also been asked to present her research at the Nebraska Adolescent Health Project later this school year.
