On Monday, May 19th, 2014, the UCLA Department of Family Medicine and its affiliates held the 30th annual multi-campus research day. The event promotes research on important issues related to improving care provided to patients in Family Medicine and primary care settings. Topics spanned a wide range of disciplines from sports medicine and quality improvement to infectious diseases and substance use.

The event, held at the California Endowment, featured Dr. Bob Bolan as its keynote speaker. Dr. Bolan is the Medical Director of the Los Angeles LGBT Center (formerly known as LAGLC), and has been advocating for gay health issues on a community level since 1975. At Research Day, Dr. Bolan gave an inspiring speech about the importance of pilot research studies, which was especially encouraging for the younger attendees, including medical residents at the beginning of their careers.
