Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - He's still in high school, but a student at Park Christian school in Moorhead is a published medical author.

Junior Ander Sawchuk's science fair project was published in the December 2012 issue of the Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology Journal. He joined forces with Sanford doctors and medical student Michaela Heller to test how well certain devices sense the cleanliness of hospital rooms.

Ander Sawchuk – Park Christian Junior: "I helped her do some of her research, which was just running around the hospital testing things. And then, myself, I did some of that for my own project and I also would test different bacteria and if they were being read on this cleanliness reader."

Sawchuk is listed as one of four authors in the article.
