Women’s Health Research Day is a celebration and promotion of research activities in Women's Health at VCU. The program will include a plenary symposium, poster awards and reception highlighting women’s health research by VCU faculty and students. Awards will be given for best posters in basic, clinical and translational, and community and public health research, the Elizabeth Fries Young Investigator Award for best overall poster by a junior investigator and a Building Interdisciplinary Bridges in Women’s Health Research Award to the poster that best demonstrates interdisciplinary investigator collaboration in women’s health.
