A team of JGHS student-researchers recently won the best presentation award at the Northwell Hospital-Feinstein Institute’s annual Medical Marvels Competition. This collaborative research competition is for ninth and tenth grade students across the island who are seeking to pursue careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

The team was comprised of sophomores Sasha Jamal, Julia Mady-Aguiar, Devin Lee, Rithika Narayan, Brennan Finnegan, and Jake Haddad. Collaboratively, the students wrote a fourteen-page paper on the harmful effects of vaping and proposed a resolution to the high school vaping crisis across New York. After presenting in competition with 37 other teams, they were awarded the best presentation award.

Congratulations students!
