Congratulations to the July Distinguished Undergraduate Researcher Award Winner, Melanie Paredes!

Melanie has recently completed her Honors Undergraduate Thesis titled “Assessing Preventive Care Utilization for Cardiovascular Disease Among U.S. Latinos. This summer Melanie will be at the University of Pennsylvania working on a clinical research study identifying phenotypic subtypes of Heart Failure patients with preserved ejection fracture (HFpEF). She will also be participating in the UCF Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program, preparing her thesis for manuscript publication at the end of the summer.

Additionally, Melanie has presented her research at the Florida Undergraduate Research Conference, UCF Student Scholar Symposium, the UCF Health Science Undergraduate Research Conference, and the LMSA SALUD conference in Washington DC.

Don’t limit yourself! So many of the opportunities I’ve been awarded were things I never thought were possible, go for it anyways! Also, it takes a village. Having strong mentors who are willing to support and encourage you along the way is crucial!”
