2020 Call for Poster Abstracts
Once again it is time to start thinking about the Poster Presentations for the LSHP Annual Meeting. The meeting will be held virtually October 22-24, 2020. We would like to challenge each of you to participate in the Virtual Poster Session which will take place during the Annual Meeting and participate in a 1-hour question & answer session with our poster presenters for CE credit. Poster Presentations are a means of communication of new ideas and services with your colleagues.
Please encourage students, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and staff to get involved! It is a great opportunity to gain presentation experience and network with members. I am sure your institution has just the right program to be presented as a poster. All poster session presenters must register for the Annual Meeting in order to present.
An Interactive Poster Session (ACPE Approved) will be featured. The theme this year will be Crescent City Connections for Better Patient Care. The goal is to encourage networking and enhance member involvement in our educational program. All posters are peer reviewed and approved by the Annual Meeting Committee.
Deadlines & Information:
- All topics and abstracts should be submitted on or before Friday, Sept 18th, 2020 via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. See below for guidelines for submitting abstracts.
