The following is a message from Jirair Ratevosian, the IH Section’s Program Committee Chair.
APHA’s 2017 Annual Meeting and Expo brings together more than 13,000 attendees and features 1,000 scientific presentations highlighting the latest in research and policy.
Are you interested in helping the Program Committee review abstracts in 2017?
As a reviewer, you will be assigned 3-10 abstracts to review. All abstracts are reviewed by three reviewers, and your score is tallied with the other two reviewers to help determine which programs should be accepted. Time commitment is typically 1-3 hours.
Deadline to sign up: January 31
Membership: Must be a current APHA member
Reviewing Begins: March 7
Please sign up to register here.
As a time-limited commitment, reviewing abstracts is a great opportunity for students and early career professionals to learn more about the abstract writing process, as well as the inner workings of the Annual Meeting. It is also a superb way to be active in the IH Section and help the Program Committee present a science-strong program in 2017.
