"UMHS-SK student with 2012 ACP Poster Presentation"
Sasha Baker, 4th year University of Medicine and Health Sciences student.

 The 2012 Maryland Region American College of Physicians (ACP) Associates Conference was held on May 10th in Baltimore.
Every year a research competition is also held in conjunction with the associates meeting.

This year’s competition included 213 submissions of case reports and research from attending physicians, residents, and medical students at more than a dozen institutions in the state of Maryland.  Judging of each submission was conducted by a panel that included the Governor of the Maryland ACP Chapter, and other executive board members.

Our poster submission on “Lactic Acidosis in Solid Tumors” [by Manjari Pandey, Marianne Cunanan-Bushm and myself] was ranked first by the judges out of all Johns Hopkins/Sinai Hospital of Baltimore submissions. It advanced to the finals along with 8 others, ultimately receiving Honorable Mention overall from the Maryland ACP. The abstract has been submitted to hematology-oncology journals for publication.
