Submission Guidelines for Abstracts
Our symposium has four broad themes: humanism, empathy, social justice, and global health. We invite submissions of innovative research, practice, programs, and training on these themes pertaining to global health work based in Hawai‘i or the Pacific.
Projects and analyses do not have to be complete to be considered for inclusion as we wish this symposium to support global health conversations of relevance to Hawai‘i and the Pacific. Student work, community-based projects, and work-in-progress are welcomed.
Selected abstracts will be considered for poster presentation (we will not be accepting abstracts for oral presentation).
You may submit more than one abstract.
At least one author must present the poster in person on 2/18/22 (Sat) from 10:30 – 12:00, on site. No virtual poster presentations will be held.
However, exceptions may be made for special situations such as illness, disability, or COVID restrictions (etc.), where you will be allowed to assign a designated proxy, so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org in advance.
Presenters will have a chance to win the “NMRI Dr. Asano Award for the Best Poster Presentation,” but must be present during the award ceremony to receive the prizes.
Please submit your abstract via this Google Form. The accepted formats are a PDF file or a Microsoft WORD document. (Please do not submit figures or tables.)
