Anny Xiao Takes Stage at OMED

OMED Global Health Student Award

During the 16th Bureau of International Osteopathic Medicine Seminar (BIOM), which held its 16th Annual International Seminar and Poster Session, “Osteopathic Medicine: Globally Integrated Education and Implementation,” on Saturday, October 25th during OMED 2014 in Seattle, myriad students competed during this challenging and thought-provoking competition. The focus was on the international medical experiences of osteopathic students and physicians.

The session was opened to anyone from the profession; however, only members of the Student Osteopathic Medical Association (SOMA) were able to participate in the poster competition, which will includes two categories: 1) broad outreach experiences and 2) research completed while on outreach programs.

One of TUC’s own, Anny Xiao, OMS II, won 2nd place for her Research Presentation “BMI as an Indicator of Serum Albumin and its Role as a Prognostic Factor for Taiwanese Patients with ESRD on Hemodialysis.”

BIOM and SOMA representatives evaluated the abstracts and the two top poster authors from each category presented their work ​at the seminar. All submitted abstracts were invited to display a poster during the seminar. Congratulations!
