The ACTS's Translational Science is an annual conference that brings together fellow trainees, junior faculty and senior scientists to discuss the latest advancements in the field of translational science. As part of this year's program agenda, several TL1/T32 trainees were invited to share poster presentations on their research findings.

Rebecca Fisher received one of 23 Gold Ribbon Awards for the poster presentation "COVID-19 Hospitalization and Death by Concentrated Racial/Ethnic and Economic Segregation: Los Angeles County, January 2020-June 2023." As a Gold Ribbon awardee, Fisher was invited to deliver an oral presentation on April 4.
