VALLEJO – Touro University California’s 22nd annual Research Day will be hosted April 20 in a virtual format this year. The event is one of the most popular on campus and features research projects by students from each TUC program, including medicine, pharmacy, education, public health and more.

The event will start at 1 p.m. Pacific with a welcome from Provost and Chief Academic Officer Dr. Sarah Sweitzer and College of Pharmacy Dean Dr. Jim Scott.

The keynote will be delivered by Dr. Geoff Curran, a Professor of Pharmacy and Psychiatry of the University of Arkansas. Dr. Curran’s address, “Implementation Science: Development, Testing, and Utilization,” mirrors the event theme of implementation science.

Following Dr. Curran will be an address from Touro’s Dr. Kristen Herzik, “A Pharmacy Perspective on Implementation Science and Clinical Practice: Lessons Learned and Improvement Opportunities,” followed by Touro’s Interim Nursing Director, Dr. Terrye Moore-Harper, From Bench to Bedside – The Important Role of the Doctor of Nursing Practice,” and then Touro’s Dr. Andrea B. Taylor, “Musculoskeletal Design and Performance: Translating from the Ground Up.”

Student poster presentations will cap the afternoon, with Session #1 taking place at 3 p.m., followed by a second session at 4 p.m. Student research presentations are grouped roughly by topic and program and guests can join sessions virtually and ask questions following a short presentation by each student.
