The Connecticut Public Health Association is committed to creating opportunities for students and new graduates of public health to showcase their academic or professional achievements. To this end, we once again invite you to participate in our annual Student Poster Session at this year’s Connecticut Public Health Association Annual Conference to be held on Friday, October 23, 2015 at the CoCo Key Conference Center in Waterbury, Connecticut. The conference is entitled “Healthy By Design”.
Student posters may present research, thesis, or community projects, or a unique academic experience.
Posters are selected based on overall quality and relevance to the conference theme. Please note that student posters may be submitted with reference to multiple "authors,” but at least one author must plan to be registered for, and be a presenter, at the conference. In addition, poster presenters must be registered for the conference in order to submit and present their poster.
The three items below are available to assist you in developing your poster:
- Poster Submission Letter and Instructions
- Student Poster Submission Offline Form (if the online submission form is unavailable)
- Designing an Effective Poster Presentation and Sample Orientations of Posters and Designs.
Poster presenters will be expected to have their posters set up by 8:00 AM on the day of the conference and must bring an easel on which to mount the poster. All posters will be displayed throughout the day; however, a designated poster presentation period will take place so the conference attendees can meet with poster presenter(s) and answer any questions.
You should complete and submit the Student Poster Submission Form before Friday, October 2, 2015. If your poster is selected, you will receive a confirmation via email.
Please feel free to share this information with other students and recent graduates (students who graduated during the 2015 academic year are considered new graduates). Questions may be submitted to CPHA at firstname.lastname@example.org. Students are encouraged to join the Connecticut Public Health Association, however, membership is not required to submit a poster abstract.
We look forward to hearing from you!
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
