Appalachian Research Day

Community-based research begins at the local level, built upon the foundation of relationships with individuals, neighborhoods and groups who have common questions and concerns. Appalachian Research Day is an opportunity to join in the discussion and learn about findings from research studies that have occurred in local communities.
