The community is welcome to attend the annual Winona Health Research Fair open house on Thursday, April 25, from 1 until 4 p.m. on the clinic first floor at Winona Health, 855 Mankato Avenue in Winona.
The Research Fair provides an opportunity for students and professionals to showcase their research and gives community members a chance to learn more about the research being conducted in Winona.
Research may pertain to immunology, microbiology, epidemiology, psychology, kinesiology, exercise science, medical engineering, or any other potentially medically related field of research.
Student Research Fair posters are currently on display during clinic hours. From 1 to 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 25, researchers will be on hand to explain their research and answer questions.
There will be a reception and award ceremony at 4:30 with keynote speaker Dr. Todd Trappe from Ball State University Human Performance Lab, presenting Physiological Effects on Both Aging and Weightlessness in Space. Space is limited, so community members interested in attending the reception at 4:30 are asked to RSVP to Lori Stanislawski at 507-457-4483.
