Out of over 60 UW-Madison graduate students in this virtual competition, 39 advanced tp the semifinals at the beginning of this month. You can see all of their video presentations here.
Laura presented “Active Together”: Physical Activity Program for Adults with Parkinson’s and their Care Partners, and was among the 9 who were chosen to advance to the Finals in February where they will compete to represent UW-Madison at the regional competition!
