Poster presentations fall along these same lines. They are a visually-based format through which to present detailed and complex research in a brief but easily understood way. The most effective posters use lots of images — graphs, charts, etc. — to deliver the message, while keeping text to a minimum.
Poster presentations are a unique way to engage an audience, serving as conversation starters and communicating your research to a large and diverse group of people. If you have conducted a research project and want to share your research methods and outcomes with other college health professionals, consider submitting a proposal for a poster presentation at ACHA’s 2015 Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida, May 26-30.
Your poster will be affixed to a bulletin board that is 4 feet high by 8 feet wide and displayed Thursday, May 28, and Friday, May 29 (please note that these dates are subject to change). Attendees at the meeting will be able to browse posters, and there will be times set aside for poster presenters to discuss their research and answer questions from attendees.
