30th Annual Symposium on Health Care Services in New York: Research and Practice

Sponsored by United Hospital Fund and Greater New York Hospital Association
Date & Time
Nov 19, 2019
8:30AM - 12:30PM
CUNY Graduate Center
365 5th Avenue, New York City

Call for Posters
Deadline: June 21, 2019

The Poster Session of the annual Symposium provides an opportunity for health services researchers and practitioners to interact and share ideas with Symposium attendees on research and evaluation findings. The posters selected for presentation will highlight research or evaluation findings that are relevant to health care administrators, researchers, clinicians, and policymakers. 

Submit an Abstract for the Poster Session
Abstract requirements and submission instructions available here. Applicants are invited to submit abstracts of one or more studies or projects that have progressed to the conclusion/evaluation phase by the time of abstract submission. Projects may consist of original research, syntheses of research, policy analyses, or model programs with evaluations, applicable universally or to specific populations (e.g., the elderly, Medicaid beneficiaries). Please note that while we welcome abstracts that focus on a specific clinical condition (e.g., congestive heart failure), the project’s approach, findings, and implications should be sufficiently accessible to non-specialists in order to be considered for inclusion at the Poster Session. 

Suggested poster topics include—but are not limited to—the following:
