Fourth Annual Cultural Competence Conference Call for Abstracts/Poster Session

Fourth Annual Cultural Competence Conference Call for Abstracts/Poster Session

As part of the Fourth Annual Cultural Competence Conference taking place on March 27, there will be a poster session dedicated to research related to cultural competence, diversity, and inclusion.

This is an opportunity to present a poster on any kind of research related to cultural competence and diversity, including research with underserved populations. An abstract may present new information or information that has already been published or presented at another meeting. It is expected that a submission of an abstract means that the author(s) will be available to present.

The posters will be displayed throughout the day of the conference, however you will be required to be at your poster during the networking lunch (12:15 p.m. – 1:45 p.m.).
