Short n Snappy Presentations: invitation to submit

ConferencePresenter_cropThe Short n Snappy presentations are now a regular fixture at our conference, so we again invite anyone attending the conference to submit an abstract if they have a topic they would like to present. The presentations, which must be no more than 15 minutes including Q&A time, allow members of our Community of Practice (that’s you!) to showcase a project you’ve recently completed or are currently working on, or share research results.

Abstracts should describe your presentation in no more than 200 words. Please send this as a Word document or in the body of an email to joanne.archer@phsa.ca between Nov 1 and (end of day) January 8, 2018. Presenters will be announced by January 22nd. You can view last year’s presentations if you’d like to see some previous Short n Snappies.
