Abstract Submissions for GHIC 2020

The Global Health & Innovation Conference accepts four types of abstract submissions. Professionals and students are eligible to submit any of these types of abstracts.

Abstract Submission Opportunities:

1."Innovative Initiatives" Information Sessions For Oral Presentation: In contrast to oral and poster abstracts and social enterprise pitches, which are merit-based and selective, the organizational information sessions are advertising opportunities for products or services. Applications are reviewed to determine if the for-profit or non-profit organization provides products or services that may be of great interest to conference participants. Instructions and submission details can be seen at http://www.uniteforsight.org/conference/organization-presentations. February 29, 2020 is the final abstract deadline for the Innovative Initiatives Information Sessions for oral presentation.

2. Social Impact Pitch Abstracts For Oral Presentation: The Social Impact Lab is an opportunity to present an idea, program, or organization to the audience and to an expert panel for mentoring, guidance, and advice. Instructions and submission details can be seen at http://www.uniteforsight.org/conference/social-enterprise-pitch. February 10, 2020 was the final abstract deadline for social impact pitches.

There are two categories of Social Impact Labs:

A newer program (0-6 years old) that is within an established (7+ year old organization) qualifies for the Social Impact Lab as well.

3. Late Breaking Abstracts for Oral and Poster Presentation: These abstracts may be research-, clinical-, or program-focused. The abstract must highlight novel and substantive work and include results (data and outcomes) that were completed since the original deadline of October 15, 2019. Abstracts will be selected for late breaking presentations based on scientific merit, timeliness, and interest to conference attendees, and accepted abstracts will be invited for oral or poster presentation.
