The Kalamazoo Community Medical and Health Sciences Research Day is an annual event open to all interested health professionals, allied health professionals, biomedical science professionals, and students of these disciplines. Recognizing the great tradition of medical and health sciences research that exists in the Kalamazoo community, WMed joins with Borgess Medical Center, Bronson Methodist Hospital, Ferris State University, Kalamazoo College, and Western Michigan University to establish this forum to celebrate, promote, and further develop the richness and diversity of research in the Kalamazoo medical community.
