Abstract submissions for the 2018 OPHA Annual Conference & Meeting will be accepted May 1st through June 15th. Abstracts addressing all public health topics are welcome and presenters should seek to make connections between research, policy and practice.

***You do not need to be a member of OPHA to present at the conference. However, all presenters for individual oral presentations, panel discussions and posters must register for the conference. No exceptions will be made.

Program sessions are 75 minutes in length allowing time for questions, answers, and audience discussion. Submission options for the OPHA Annual Conference & Meeting are:

Individual Oral Presentation: Oral presentations are 10-12 minutes in length. Three presentations, grouped by themes, will be presented in each session. Additional time will be allotted by a session moderator for Q&A and discussion.

Student posters will be entered in the Student Poster Contest* and the winner will be announced on Tuesday, October 9th during lunch.
*The Student Poster Contest is open to current students and students who submitted prior to graduation, but are now new professionals (graduated w/in 6 months of conference). Student registration rates will apply to those presenting in this format.

Panel Discussion: A panel discussion (75-minute program session) includes a moderator and/or discussant and up to three panelists/presentations. Due to time constraints, only a limited number of panel discussions will be accepted. Submit: an overview abstract describing the overall purpose/theme of the panel and three separate abstracts, one for each of the panelist. NOTE: You must submit an abstract for each presentation/presenter on the panel to ensure your submission will be reviewed.
