The North Carolina Health Literacy Council has issued a Call for Poster Abstracts for its First Annual Health Literacy Conference. This conference is a two-day meeting featuring plenary and break-out sessions and a Poster Session for research and program implementation related to health literacy.
Researchers or those who have created and implemented an innovative program and who wish to present a poster should read the information below carefully.
Conference attendees include health educators, nurses, physicians, dentists, dietitians, researchers, writers, librarians, administrators, academics, and others.

Poster Session: The Poster Session will be held Tuesday night September 21, 2010 from 5 – 7PM during which time presenters must be at their boards.
Registration: Presenters must be registered attendees of the conference.
Materials: Presenters may provide handout materials to support their presentations. Presenters are responsible for all their own materials. Tables on which to put any handout materials will be in very limited supply, so plan accordingly.
August 13, 2010 Submission deadline
August 20, 2010 Notification on acceptance decisions sent via e-mail
Size of Board
The poster will be mounted on a metal air wall. Most presenters orient their presentation in landscape format (48″ tall x 56″ wide maximum), but the decision is yours. We suggest that your display be printed on paper or lightweight poster board that can be easily attached to the walls. You can use Velcro, tape, or 3M tack to secure your poster, but we strongly recommend the use of tack. Tack allows for easy set-up and removal. Although we will have some supplies available, we strongly suggest you bring your own to facilitate the mounting process.
Criteria for Evaluating Submissions
Posters may present information on research findings or program implementation and results.
Abstracts are evaluated on:
Substance and clarity of content
Relevance and timeliness in terms of health literacy practice/issues
Specificity and practicality
Clarity of writing and presentation; and
Appropriateness to session format.
Please describe the project using the following suggested headings or similar headings that are appropriate to your project. Abstract is limited to 2 pages.
