Matthew Vonk, an Applied Health Sciences masters student, competed with nine other graduate students at the campus-wide 3 Minute Thesis Competition last Thursday and secured first place along with the People’s Choice Award for his presentation that connects physical exercise with mental health.

Participants had three minutes and one slide to explain the significance of their research thesis to a non-specialist audience. Supervised by Professor Laura Middleton, Matt took the stage to present on "The effects of a single session of weight training on mental health". For his impressive presentation, he took home the $1,000 award and also improved his public speaking ability.

Let’s show our support for Matt as he advances to the 3MT provincial finals at McMaster University on April 24. The winners of the provincial competition will advance to the first Canadian national 3MT competition in May 2014.
