Annual Meeting Poster Awards

The top scoring abstracts are eligible to be considered for a poster award at each annual meeting. Poster awards are coordinated by the past Research Review Chair and AAHB members serve as judges. Posters are judged based on scientific content, the visual effectiveness of the poster, and the presentation by the presenter. There are two categories for poster awards- student and non-student professional. One Outstanding Poster Award is given per category and multiple Poster of Distinctions Awards may be given.
