21st Annual platform/poster presentation program at the OPA 136th Annual Conference
2014 Platform or Poster - (Deadline: February 14, 2014)
The Ohio Pharmacists Association and the Council of Ohio Colleges of Pharmacy are pleased to announce the 21st Annual platform/poster presentation program at the OPA 136th Annual Conference, entitled Ohio Research Forum.
This venue will provide an opportunity for those performing practice-related research to share their findings with pharmacists throughout Ohio. It is an exciting venue for faculty, residents, and students to display and discuss the impact of their research with the individuals responsible for serving Ohio citizens with the best the profession has to offer. We are pleased to continue to offer both platform and poster presentations at the 2014 Conference.
The platform presentations are set for Friday, April 4, 2014, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Columbus Convention Center in downtown Columbus. The poster session will be held in the lobby adjacent to the Exhibit Hall from 4:10 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. You are invited/encouraged to submit an abstract of your work using the online form (see link below).
The program has capacity for 7 platform presentations and approximately 40 posters. Authors should indicate a preference for a platform or poster presentation on the abstract form. Efforts will be made to honor all preferences; however, the selection committee reserves the right to make the final determination. Authors selected for platform presentations should plan for a 12-minute program including a time for questions. An LCD projector and a computer to load the presentations will be available.
Submission deadline is Friday, February 14, 2014. Notification of acceptance and presentation format/time will be sent via e-mail to the address provided on the abstract 3 to 4 weeks prior to the presentation.
