Participate in the 1st Annual Poster Session


Data is undoubtedly one of the strongest driving forces in researching a particular area of concern and implementing change - but, it is not the sole source of information when considering the need or impact on the community. During the 1st Annual Poster Session, we want to see what you are doing to make an impact within your community. This can be through original research, interventions, data analysis, new programs, call to action, etc.


All abstracts must be submitted by March 31, 2018.




Abstracts do not need to necessarily follow traditional poster templates but should be structured in a way that tells your story for others to learn about and appreciate your efforts. Content within the posters should be easy to follow and interpret by the general audience and is based on data/information collected from your agency. It can include original research, intervention done within your agency showing results before and after the implementation, case report/case study, or other information showing how your agency is making or can make an impact within your community.




Posters will be on display throughout Connect 2018 (Wednesday, July 18 - Friday, July 20). Authors are asked to stand by their poster at two (2) designated times of 30 minutes each during the conference to answer any questions viewers may have. ImageTrend will designate specific times for poster viewing.




If the poster is accepted, you will need to provide a printed 36" tall x 48" wide poster for the conference that can be mounted on display board. ImageTrend will provide all equipment necessary to display posters for presenting. Posters that have been previously presented are accepted. Contact Morgan Anderson, Epidemiologist, at manderson@imagetrend.com with any questions.




Posters will be judged during the conference and ribbons will be awarded.




Deadline for Abstract Submission: March 31, 2018

After review, accepted posters will be notified by April 15, 2018

Deadline for final draft of poster, if abstract is accepted: June 15, 2018



Abstract submission is open until March 31.
