RESEARCH SHOWCASE

This year's University of Washington Department of Emergency Medicine Annual Research Showcase featured groundbreaking research from faculty, residents, and medical students. Research topics ranged from wildfire impacts on mental health, pediatric non-prescription fentanyl exposures, and HIV care among refugees in Uganda.

More than fifty faculty members, staff, and residents met in the Husky Union Building to listen to several presenters discuss their research. The day ended with awarding one person from each category for their research.
