Second-year medical students Christopher Flynn and Miles Hang have been recognized for their scholarly work at the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians (ACOFP) Annual Convention and Scientific Seminars, March 24 in Las Vegas. They are two of three students in the initial cohort completing an Accelerated D.O./Family Medicine Residency Continuum at NYIT.

Flynn (pictured with Bill Blazey, D.O. '05, assistant professor of family medicine) presented his paper, "Dietary Considerations in Primary Prevention of Atrial Fibrillation," which won the first-place Namey-Burnett Writing Award given by the ACOFP's Public Health and Wellness Committee.

Hang was awarded second place in the same competition for his paper, "Possible Role of Oral Contraceptives in the Prevention of Ovarian Cancer."
