What were your takeaways from this conference/case competition?
The conference provided a valuable opportunity to present our work over the past year, listen to panel discussions and thoughts from leaders in the field, and reflect on the past year in health policy.

How will your participation in this conference/case competition support your professional development?
I had the opportunity to present live in front of a virtual audience, and also present 2 posters done in collaboration with professors and other students at NYU. This was the first conference I presented at since joining the T32 Population Health Scholars program at NYU Langone.

What are some next steps or action items this conference/case competition inspired?
Several health services researchers reached out to me after my presentation and the conference to discuss additional research questions. These conversations have been valuable in my growth as a researcher.

What are some tips or best practices that you would like to share with other Wagner students who attend a conference/case competition?
Tips would be to practice in advance, and anticipate any Zoom or virtual presentation related issues.
