Five students in Sterling College’s pre-med program have taken advantage of a collaboration between the College and the Sterling Medical Center to team up with physicians in the community to better understand the roles and responsibilities of physicians.
Leonore Enfield and Tyler Wise, students from the Sterling College department of natural sciences and mathematics, were invited to present their research at the 2012 Meeting of the Central Plains Society of Mammologists. For the past two years, these students have teamed up with assistant professor of biology, Dr. Jonathan Conard, to study the effects of prairie restoration on small mammals. They have presented their results every year since 2010, and plan to continue their research until 2014.
The Sterling College Biology Department was recently represented at the Kansas Academy of Science Annual Meeting held in Baldwin City, Kan., on April 8-9. Two students, Leonore Enfield of Raymond, Kan., and Tyler Wise of Clearwater, Kan., gave a research presentation titled, “Effects of Prairie Restoration on Small Mammals.”
