Dutton wins Three Minute Thesis competition

Alan Flurry

The University of Georgia Graduate School hosted the 11th annual Three Minute Thesis competition in a virtual ceremony on April 6. Better known by the acronym 3MT, the competition requires contestants to explain their thesis or dissertation topic and its significance in three minutes or less using only a single static presentation slide.

This year’s grand prize winner was Leah Dutton, a doctoral student in the Hugh Hodgson School of Music, for her presentation titled “Prevention, Early Recognition, and Intervention Techniques for Injuries in String Players.”

Congratulations to Dutton and all of this year's participants. The Franklin College was well represented among the 2022 finalists:
