Ms. Sharma & her colorful research poster.

Graduate student, Dinghy Sharma and her take on "Quality of Life" through research.

Grad student, Dinghy Sharma was invited to attend the Native Children's Research Exchange II 2012, Frontiers in Intervention Research with Native Children, Families, and Communities conference that was held at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus on October 4-5th.

During the poster symposia Ms. Sharma was able to share her research entitled, "What Makes Life Good?: Co-Developing a Quality of Life Measure for Use with Alaska Native College Students", under the mentorship of Dr. Ellen D.S. Lopez, MPH, Ph.D.

Ms. Sharma was not only honored to attend the event & share their research findings, but also had the great opportunity to learn from other NCRE scholars and mentors.
