For several years now, Dr. Georgina M. Montgomery has hosted a women in science digital collection. Several undergraduates have published biographies of women in science on this website, which combines their research papers with links to archival sources. One student who published on this website went on to work with MSU's museum to create an exhibit about Eliza Burt Gamble, a Michigan woman who wrote works concerning evolutionary theory. You can find the exhibit by the Sparty's in Holmes Hall.
Two of Dr. Williams' Briggs undergraduate research assistants (Brian Batayeh, Megan Wudkewych) and a Briggs student taking independent study LB290E with Dr. Williams (Alana O'Mara) have presented their work in the poster session at a graduate student HPS conference called STGlobal
held annually at the National Academy of Science and the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington, D.C. Likewise, Alana O'Mara published her independent study paper in the graduate student peer-reviewed journal, Journal of Science Policy and Governance
Students working with me develop a shared foundation in medical sociology, and then interrogate, challenge, and contribute to that knowledge through group-based ethnography. In this research experience, students are able to move from knowledge consumers to knowledge producers. PAs have been able to experience this progression as they collaborate with each other and myself on a project. In one such recent project we have researched the conditions under which patients at Sparrow Hospital adhere to their surgeons´ post-operation expectations.
