Alaska Health Summit Student Poster Solicitation

The Alaska Public Health Association (ALPHA) is soliciting Student Posters for its January 2017 Health Summit, to be held in Anchorage Alaska, January 17-19, 2017.

It’s not too late for students to submit poster session abstracts for the upcoming ALPHA Health Summit! 
Deadline has been extended through November 3rd.
Abstracts that focus on student research or projects of various kinds are welcome! 

These posters will be featured in a special session dedicated to student posters related to work completed by the student(s) during the 2014-2015 or 2015-2016 academic years. Only students who were enrolled in an academic program through the fall 2016 session may exhibit their posters and discuss their work at the session. The posters will be judged by a conference committee at the Health Summit, and awards will be given to the top three posters.

ALPHA will accept proposals for the posters through November 3, 2016 via the Online Survey. See the Student Poster Evaluation Criteria for poster submission.

Notification of acceptance will be sent to students by November 15, 2016.
