2017 CGH Symposium Poster Guidelines

We are excited to learn about your work, your experiences and your outcomes as a CGH Scholar. Each scholar / scholar team is required to produce a poster for presentation at the 2017 CGH Scholar Research Symposium scheduled for Thursday 19 October in Clark Hall. 
All scholars should be prepared to make a short presentation, 3-5 minutes, to encapsulate your work. As CGH projects are so diverse, we’ve included a presentation on poster development, courtesy of Dr. Scott Heysell,  the rubric for poster judges,  and we ask that you adhere to very basic guidelines:

Create posters in PowerPoint sized at 36x48. (In Powerpoint, go to DESIGN, slide size, customize, and choose width 48, height 36) All Posters should be in Landscape format. CGH will be responsible for printing all posters and you may pick up your poster after the symposium.
Include compelling and relevant photographs, high-resolution photos are best. Please do not include images of clinics or individuals who did not give their permission to be photographed.
Focus on the following:
  • Background
  • Research Question or Rationale
  • Methodology
  • Outcomes
  • What you learned/Personal statement

Include your Institutional Review Board Protocol Number.

If you include credits, please note that the Center for Global Health funded your project.

We understand that not everyone will have data to share at this point. Please focus on the experience. We look forward to spending some time with you all and ask that you encourage your faculty mentors to join us.
