Psychology students Katherine Lawrence ('06), Kumar Yogeeswaren ('06), and Zhivka Petkova ('06) won the Florence L. Denmark Award for Outstanding Poster for a presentation of their research at the 14th Annual Pace University Psychology Conference last spring.

The title of the poster presentation was: Gender Differences in Depression Across Cultures: India and the US. Professor Hugh Stephenson sponsored the research.

The award was one of four that Ithaca College Psychology students received last year when they presented their research at the Pace University Conference, the Eastern Colleges Science Conference, and the New England Psychological Association convention.
