The Colorado State University Graduate Showcase is a one-day conference for students to present their research, work and talents, and to connect with other graduate students and faculty members at CSU. Students also learn about other disciplines and gain conference experience. This year, MPH student Carolina Mariano Ferraz presented a poster on her research project focusing on limiting events of food-borne illness, related to contaminated fruits and vegetables, that occur during any production or handling step on produce farms. She created an interactive informational tool to assist growers in addressing post harvest practices and sanitation by creating a resource for selecting an appropriate chemical agent for a food contact surface.

Congratulations Carolina!
