2019 Consortium Members Meeting Trainee Investigators Awardee Poster Session

The submission site is now closed. Submitting authors will be notificed of their acceptance and award status by Friday, February 8.
For the 2019 Consortium Members Meeting, there is a new opportunity for trainees from member institutions to display and discuss original research or implementation and results of an innovative educational, policy, or clinical program pertinent to integrative health. Due to a generous sponsorship from the Samueli Foundation, we are pleased to offer awards for trainee investigators to support their travel to present a poster at the 2019 Members Meeting. 
In order to apply to present at this poster session and to receive a travel award, a Trainee Investigator (defined as an individual who is currently enrolled as a student in a BA, Masters, PhD, MD or other doctoral program, or a post-doc, resident or fellow) must be primarily responsible for the work being done as described in the abstract, and be prepared to attend the 2019 Members Meeting to present their work.  
All accepted abstracts will receive an award of up to $1,200 to help fund the costs of travel to the meeting to present a poster at the 2019 Consortium Members Meeting. Three of the abstracts will also be invited to give an oral presentation at the meeting.
