Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) at Baylor College of Medicine presented an award to Amelia Shrader, a University of Alabama - Huntsville student nurse, during the Aerospace Medical Association (AsMA) annual conference Aug. 28, 2021 – Sept. 2, 2021, held in Denver, Colorado.
The award facilitates scientific education in this unique and growing nursing field, by covering the registration costs to the 2022 AsMA annual conference in Reno, Nevada.
“TRISH is thrilled to present this award to Amelia Shrader, who has shown excitement in learning of the many ways science and research can help protect human health in space,” said TRISH chief medical officer and AsMA Associate Fellow Emmanuel Urquieta, M.D. “As we are seeing with the Delta variant of COVID-19, we know nursing students are the future of protecting the health of many. The skill and passion which enable nurses to endure dangerous conditions such as in pandemics, or extreme environments such as space, are truly inspiring. We want to support them by providing training opportunities.”
