More than three hundred health care professionals attended the fifth annual Canadian Hypertension Congress (October 22-24) to learn about leading¬edge research into the prevention, treatment and control of hypertension.

Stephanie recently picked up the top prize at the 56th National Student Research Forum at the University of Texas Medical Branch campus in Galveston, Texas. Caligiuri’s presentation, “Oxylipins Increase the Odds of High Central Aortic Blood Pressure and Are Beneficially Influenced by Dietary Flaxseed in Patients with Peripheral Arterial Disease”, was awarded “Best Overall Outstanding Conference Presentation”.

Congratulations Stephanie!
