U of I College of Medicine Rockford hosts Research Day

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Students at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford got a chance to show off their work at the school's 19th annual Research Day.

The aim of the day is to give students a chance to present their research, which covered fields like clinical and social sciences and public health, and prepare for life outside of school.

"It's really important for us to make sure we're up to date on certain aspects of what we do for a living so we can provide better care for our patients," Rick Wang said.

"Our medical students will go into clinical practice, and so these are opportunities for them to really understand the concept," Campus Research Committee Chair Alesia Hawkins explained.

Students in the event also received awards for their work.
