United Hospital Fund, GNYHA Foundation, and the Symposium Planning Committee
announce the
Call for Posters
Deadline: June 22, 2018
for the
29th Annual Symposium on Health Care Services in New York: Research and Practice
Tuesday, October 30, 2018
The poster session provides an opportunity for health services researchers and practitioners to interact and share ideas with Symposium attendees on research and evaluation findings. Posters selected by the Symposium Planning Committee for presentation highlight research or evaluation findings that are relevant to health care administrators, clinicians, and policymakers.

Submit an Abstract for the Poster Session
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 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). Download the complete Call for Posters form below for specifications and submission instructions. Please note that while the Planning Committee welcomes 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 to be considered for inclusion in the Poster Session.
