The Emergency Medicine Research Associates Program at Hackensack University Medical Center, a member of Hackensack Meridian Health, hosted the 4th Annual Research Day. Research Day is an opportunity for research associates, emergency medicine residents and other research affiliates of the Emergency and Trauma Center to present results and progress on independent research projects that investigate fields of particular interest in medicine. While building on the already strong research foundation at HackensackUMC, research associates gain experience with the prospect of publishing in a peer-reviewed journal.
