We are soliciting abstracts for poster and podium presentation. More specifically, we seek scientific and/or informative abstracts that reflect the focus of the conference. The upcoming conference will focus on replicable interprofessional collaborative models and approaches from the clinical, research, and community arenas that integrate all levels of providers to improve health outcomes, eliminate health disparities, and achieve health equity. Selected abstracts will be presented during poster sessions or podium presentations during Concurrent Scientific Sessions. Please review the Abstract Submittal & Presentation Guidelines before submitting your abstract.
