Marjorie Bash College of Health Sciences and Technology provides a forum to highlight original research and educational innovations by students working with faculty/lecturers at institutions in our community. The Health Sciences Research Day promotes interaction among the students, lecturers, researchers/professionals, and community members.  

Students in undergraduate, master's, doctoral, and residency programs are invited to submit abstracts and posters for judging.  Entries from outside of Marjorie Bash College are welcome! The abstracts provide a written research summary, while the posters are a concise visual representation whereby the authors present their work by addressing the reasons for the research, the methodology employed, and the resulting conclusions.  The posters are an excellent means to briefly and articulately describe research, while the opportunity for questioning by the judges provides for a significant amount of interaction between the students and the public. 

The Research Day will consist of in-person research poster presentations, a keynote address delivered by a prominent leader in the health sciences, and an awards ceremony. Awards will also be presented for Best Abstracts and Posters in each category as well as other Prizes.
