Learn about medical research being conducted by university students right here in Winona

Winona Health provides opportunities for local pre-professional students to gain clinical experience prior to applying to professional school.

The Winona Health Research Committee is hosting a Research Fair to give area pre-professionals the opportunity to share their work and community members the chance to learn about the medical research being conducted by local university students.

Student research may pertain to immunology, microbiology, epidemiology, psychology, kinesiology, exercise science, medical engineering, or any other potentially medically related field of research.

The Student Research Fair posters will be on display during clinic hours from 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 18 through 4 p.m. Friday, April 20. That Friday, between 1 and 4 p.m., researchers will be on hand to explain their projects and answer questions, and there will be a reception and award ceremony at 4:30. Don Snodgrass, MD, FACP, will be the keynote speaker. His talk: Medical Myths.
