Pursuing medical marvels at SKA


Six students from the Stella K. Abraham High School for Girls presented their work on solving the opioid addiction crisis, in the Northwell Health Medical Marvels Research Competition, part of the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research and the Center for Workforce Readiness, on March 8.

Under the direction of SKA mentor Dr. David Friedman, Bracha Bayla Erlbaum, Emily Haller, Nicole Haller, Elisheva Glatt, Atara Shtern and Meira Steiner submitted their completed proposal and presented their posterboard display to the judges, researchers and fellow peers.

Although they did not win the competition, the SKA students enjoyed the chance to participate and the workshops they attended on the opioid epidemic and the antidotes that are available.
