Call for Abstracts
Submissions were due April 18, 2013 - CLOSED
Skill-building Session (2 hours): Skill-building sessions are intended to teach a specific skill needed by public health professionals and include one or more exercises that let attendees practice using this skill. Attendees should begin to develop a skill that is important for public health and related to one or more of the Ten Essential Services. This session differs from a Program/Research Showcase Session in that attendees will have a hands-on opportunity to practice the skill versus a lecture-based session.
Program/Research Showcase Session (30 minutes): Program/Research Showcase Sessions are intended to provide attendees with a synopsis of a public health program or relevant research. Attendees should learn about how the program or research relates to the Ten Essential Services and to the theme of the conference “Public Health Unplugged.” Presenters should ensure time is available for questions and answers during the 30-minute session.
Program/Research Showcase Session (1 hour - two sessions): This option provides an extended time period beyond the 30-minute program/research showcase session option listed above. You will be required to provide justification for needing extended time to present and the additional information audiences will get during the second 30-minute timeframe. Program planners will assess this justification when assigning one or two 30-minute sessions.
Poster Session: Poster Sessions are intended to provide a graphic presentation of program or research findings by displaying graphs, photos, diagrams and descriptive text. The authors will then hold discussions with the registrants who are circulating among the poster boards during the designated poster session timeframe. The presenter should remain by his/her poster board for the duration of the one hour session to answer questions.
