Smith’s project was “Facilitators and Barriers to Coordinating Care for Pregnant Female Veterans.” Research Without Walls gives students practice in presenting their research to peers, professors and the public in a relaxed, informal setting.

In addition, outstanding displays of quantitative and qualitative information were recognized, and this year’s guest speaker was Sherrill Wayland, MSW ’08, founding executive director of SAGE Metro St. Louis.
