Sara Garcia Figuera, a PhD candidate in Neil McRoberts’ group, received the 1st place in the APS Pacific Division student oral presentation competition for her presentation entitled “The dilemma of coordination for huanglongbing management in California”. This year, the Division met virtually in conjunction with the American Phytopathological Society conference (Plant Health 2020 online), and presentations by students who were part of the Division were entered into the competition and judged by a panel. There were 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards, and the winner will be invited to attend the APS 2021 meeting to present in the Divisional student symposium.
