Each semester, the Graduate Research Series (GRS) gives graduate students the opportunity to share the process of their thesis or dissertation. The Fall 2019 GRS will illuminate the process of three graduate students Francesca Lamoreux, Mohamed Hassan and Alexander Lovelace.

Lamoreux and Hassan will present “Improving Diabetes Management Among Somali Americans: An Interprofessional Education Approach” on November 18 at 1-2:30 p.m. in the Friends of the Library Room, room 319, on the third floor of Alden Library. Lovelace will present “Enough Paper to Fill a Cathedral: Problems of Archival Research in the Writing of World War II History” on November 20 from 10-11:30 a.m. in the Friends of the Library Room, room 319

Lamoreux, a graduate student in the Combined Master of Science and Dietetic Internship program at Ohio University, is interested in working as a clinical dietitian after graduation. Hassan, a doctoral candidate and a certified nurse practitioner in adult gerontology, works as a family medicine provider in Central Ohio. They will present on the process of executing their project to create, implement and evaluate the effectiveness of an educational workshop for Somali immigrants caring for someone with diabetes living in Columbus, Ohio.

Lovelace, a history doctoral candidate, will be presenting about the problems of utilizing resources from the World War II era because the war produced many documents, but all of the archival information is spread throughout the United States and Europe. Lovelace will also discuss how to apply and receive grant money, as he has applied for eight grants and received them all, which allowed him to travel to eight archives and photograph over 100,000 pages of documents. 

Each semester University Libraries partners with the Graduate Student and Faculty senates to present the Graduate Research Series, allowing graduate students to share their experiences with their peers. It allows the presenters to gain experience and presentation skills while also providing assistance and knowledge to the audience who want to learn more for their upcoming research. 

Both presentations are free and open to the public and all of the Ohio University community.
