GWSPH: Video Submission FAQ #1

Is there a required format I need to follow when presenting my research poster?

ANSWER:  Below is our recommended format for presenting your research poster:

  • Introduction: You should begin your presentation by stating your name, the name of your program/department and the title of your poster presentation.*

    • Example: “My name is Hannah Beaton. I’m a Public Health Prevention and Community Health Graduate student at The Milken Institute School of Public Health. One of my interests has been addressing the needs of underserved populations and I conducted research focused on “Community Based Management Programs for Dengue in Central America”
      * Please note the introduction section will not be included as part of the 3 minute limit.

  • Brief Background:  Succinctly provide the background information on your topic. Consider including the following:

    • Purpose of the research

    • Identify the primary literature (i.e. what has been published on this topic and the gap)
