Poster Mar 02, 2017
Alison Oberne, Cheryl Vamos, Lauri Wright
Emerging adulthood is a time when young adults begin to adopt dietary practices that persist into adulthood. This time period is critical in understanding the impact of diet on subsequent weight-related health conditions such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, sleep apnea, and arthritis. To better understand the dietary practices of emerging adults, and college students more specifically, it is necessary to use effective measurement techniques. The purpose of this critique is to compare dietary intake measures used in research assessing dietary practices among college students.

Psychiatric Risk Gene Cacna1c and Early Life Stress: Potential Gene-Environment interactions?Poster
Early life stress (ELS) is highly associated with development of psychopathology
and mood disorders in adulthood. Genetic studies have identified variation in the gene calcium voltage-gated channel subunit alpha1C (CACNA1C) to increase risk for several psychiatric disorders. This poster assessed the expression of Cacna1c following prepubertal stress.
