 Call for Posters — GSHP Spring Meeting-Sign up NOW!


This is your opportunity to share your results with pharmacy colleagues from around Georgia at the GSHP Spring Meeting Poster Session in Savannah on Saturday, March 24, 2018. Posters highlighting innovative services, evaluations and pharmacy practice model change initiatives are especially encouraged. Encore presentations from national meetings (ASHP, ACCP, etc.) are accepted.  Presenting a peer-reviewed poster is an ideal professional development activity for preceptors, both seasoned and new practitioners, residents and students. The primary (first) poster presenter must be a GSHP member and results must be included on abstract to be accepted.  Research-in-progress abstracts with background and methods only will not be accepted for the poster awards but can present.  Pharmacy students and residents are especially encouraged to participate.   Students and residents presenting posters will receive free meeting registration if they are the primary (first author) on the poster.  Please let us know if you are able to attend the entire program or Saturday only).


The GSHP Education Committee will be evaluating ALL posters submitted for recognition and designation as “Outstanding GSHP Poster”.   There will be three categories recognized: 1) Best Pharmacy Student Poster; 2) Best Pharmacy Resident Poster; 3) Best Pharmacy Practitioner Poster based on the credentials of the primary (first) author.  The scoring rubric by which the posters will be judged will be available on the GSHP website.
