Previous Research Day Events
2020 Internal Medicine Research Day
Due to COVID-19, we made the difficult decision to cancel the Internal Medicine Research Day event for 2020. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution, the University event policy, and for the safety of our attendees.
We appreciate all of the hard work that the Research Day Committee, volunteers, and staff invested in planning Research Day 2020. Thank you to everyone who submitted their abstracts and contributed their time and support to this important event.
