Call for Research Posters:
The Arkansas Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (ArAND) is sponsoring the Annual Meeting and Exposition on April 19-20, 2018 at Arkansas Children’s Hospital, Little Rock, AR. Dietetics professionals and students have the opportunity to network and present their research projects on Thursday, April 19 at the Networking and Poster Session. This session is designed to highlight best practices and tangible research results. Additionally, this forum provides an opportunity to visually present and discuss research. The poster session is open to all annual meeting attendees. There will be a dedicated poster session meet and greet time during the annual meeting. All abstracts are peer-reviewed by a panel of dietetics professionals with specific experience in appropriate practice areas.
Poster Presentations offer content using charts, graphs, illustrations, and/or photographs. Posters allow for informal, one-on-one or small group discussions with the presenter about the issue, problem, project or research addressed in the poster.
