ABOUT RESEARCH DAY
Research Day began in 1989 and has grown to become a key place for students, residents, and family physicians to present their research to a supportive audience of their peers, demonstrating the value of research to family medicine throughout one’s carreer.
The Marc Connelley, MD Award for Best Research Project honors the memory of PAFP member and past Research Day participant, Marc Connelley, MD (Williamsport) who was killed while serving in the Persian Gulf War.
Research Day is a featured track in the PAFP's March Live CME Conference, bringing a larger, broader audience of more than 200 physicians to participate in the research presentations, the poster presentations, and the awards reception.
