2018 ISIR Prize for Best Student Poster

Cassidy Burningham


Cassidy grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah with a family who has supported her throughout her entire life. Growing up with family and friends who were constantly asking for her advice is what drove Cassidy in to the world of behavioral science. Cassidy received her Bachelor’s Degree in Behavioral Science with an emphasis in Psychology this past Spring from Utah Valley University. Cassidy will be continuing her education at the University of Utah and will be getting her Master’s Degree in Social Work. Cassidy is hoping to work in the hospital setting with trauma victims and/or be involved in crisis intervention. She will be working this upcoming year specifically with HIV patients. She would like to thank her family, friends, and mentors who have helped support her throughout this journey and have helped her get to this point.
