Alum, Cassandra Derella ’17, a Health and Exercise Physiology major was the recipient of the American Physiological Association Graduate Abstract Award at the 2019 Experimental Biology (EB) Conference in Orlando, Florida. Casey was very complimentary in her assessment of how well Ursinus College, and specifically the Health and Exercise Physiology Department and her research in the HEART Laboratory had prepared her for graduate studies. Casey is currently working on her PhD in Biomedical Science at Augusta University. The HEP department is so proud of Casey’s accomplishments and extends their congratulations to Casey on her graduate award!
