Welcome back! It is my pleasure to welcome you to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center’s 15th Annual Resident Research Day. Despite the unexpected hiatus the event had to take in 2020, it is heartening to see our Research Day return in this virtual format. There is no question that this past year and the COVID-19 pandemic have brought many new challenges to the forefront. Regardless, it is a testament to the resiliency of our ARMC Resident Physicians that they have continued to deliver outstanding care to our patients in extremely trying circumstances, without abandoning their research commitments. In total, ARMC Residents have submitted over 750 research projects since our inaugural event back in 2006.

I encourage you to read through these Proceedings, and view the posters associated with each submission on ARMC’s dedicated Research Day website. Just as some of these projects derived their genesis from past year’s projects, I hope that those residents who are in the discovery phase of their own research journey will look to this year’s submissions for inspiration. We have already seen examples where results of research at past years' Research Day have gone on to change clinical practice at our institution; it will be exciting to see if some of this year’s contributions do the same.

I am deeply grateful for each of the authors whose work is represented here today, and for their faculty mentors. Likewise, we owe a debt of gratitude to the large and diverse patient population we are privileged to serve at ARMC, and from whom we are able to draw our research. Special thanks also to our Editorial Board. Several have provided steadfast support since our very first event; and we welcome several new members. The work of the Graduate Medical Education office in promoting today’s event, led by Dr. Dotun Ogunyemi, is also appreciated. I would be remiss to not also direct specific appreciation to Teckah Lawrence, Erin Managbanag and Jessi Newell for being the driving forces behind coordinating this year’s Research Day, and undertaking the logistics required to launch this first virtual version of the event. And finally, as always, a tremendous thank you to Dr. Edward Lee whose continued commitment to this event remains unmatched and inspiring!

Again, welcome back, and thank you for being part of today’s event.
