"We are all excited to have this opportunity be a part of our Research Day event," exclaimed Wallace.

And, speaking of opportunities, there will be a career fair with representatives from local hospitals and healthcare agencies and raffles throughout the day's activities, according to Wallace.

In addition, a group of senior-level students from each campus will be presenting service projects at approximately 11 a.m. during the Research Day event.
