Winner: 2012 Back of the Envelope Award

2012 Back of the Envelope Award

Back of the Envelope Awards from the University of Alabama School of Public Health support small, creative research projects that are solicited on the back of a number 10 envelope. To keep with the informal proposal theme, envelopes are slipped under the dean’s door for submission. I was awarded a Back of the Envelope award in the Trainee category with a submission titled “Macronutrient confounding with thirst.”
