The North High School is proud to announce that senior Ahmya McMillan has been selected as a recipient of the 2021 New York Institute of Technology Mini-Research Grant Award.
Ahmya was awarded a grant in the amount of $300 for her research proposal, “The Association Between Father Presence and Support, Neighborhood Environment, and Preterm Birth in African American Women.”
She has been working on this project for more than two years with her mentor Dr. Shawnita Sealy-Jefferson of the Social Epidemiology to Eliminate Disparities Lab at Ohio State University. The NYIT Grant Review committee determined Ahmya’s submission “to have scientific merit and potential impact in the STEM fields, including health.”
The district congratulates Ahmya on this wonderful and successful accomplishment.
