American University of Antigua (AUA) College of Medicine student Ryan Singhi won the first place Medical Student award for his research at the 2013 American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) Scientific Assembly in San Diego, CA. The event took place September 25-28, 2013.

He is the first author of this work and was the main presenter. He was one of the few students selected to present his research at this high profile event.
“I am proud to represent AUA College of Medicine,” said Singhi. “I shared my work at a national level and had the opportunity to discuss relevant clinical issues that are associated with the practice of medicine.”
