Poster and Oral Presentations

The Institute for Rural Health Research welcomes proposals from University of Alabama students, faculty and staff, researchers from other institutions, health care professionals, community leaders, and other interested participants.

All submissions will be reviewed and scored by a committee of faculty from a range of health-related disciplines. Applicants should indicate the type of presentation they prefer, 10 minute oral or poster, in the submission form; however, the review committee will determine presentation type.

The top scoring submissions for poster presentation will be invited to give a 3 minute, elevator pitch style oral presentation of their work.

First, Second and Third place winners for best poster in the Student, Professional, and Community divisions will be recognized after the poster session.
