    "CSM was a beneficial experience because presenting a research poster allowed me to interact with other PTs and students from across the nation where we could discuss various perspectives on our shared interests. I also enjoyed  attending the exhibitions and presentations, it was helpful to expand on the knowledge that I'm currently learning here at UMES."
