2015 Health Disparities Poster Competition

Call for Abstracts:

Submission Deadline February 20, 2015

University of Pittsburgh graduate students, postdoctoral trainees, and first professional students (MD, DMD, PharmD, Rehabilitation Science, and Nursing) in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, including psychology and social work, are invited to submit abstracts for the 2015 HEALTH DISPARITIES POSTER COMPETITION.

Sponsored by the Schools of the Health Sciences, this event will give young researchers an opportunity to present their work and expand their scientific professional skill set. The term “disparities” applies to differences in health status in any studied population compared to the comparable majority (or more commonly studied) population. We expect to see work in disparities based upon race or ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, age, and other parameters.
