SUBJECT:    DEADLINE APPROACHING - CALL FOR ABSTRACTS - UC San Diego Public Health Research Day 2018

Dear Colleagues,

The UC San Diego Institute for Public Health will host the 4th Annual Public Health Research Day Symposium and Poster Session to highlight research accomplishments and real world Public Health activities of the UC San Diego Public Health community.

Please save April 4, 2018 from 1:30-5:00 PM for this dynamic event.

This two-part event will include a Symposium and a Poster Session, the latter of which will highlight the cutting edge public health work being done by our undergraduate students, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, research staff, and faculty.

We are now calling for poster abstract submissions. If you are interested in participating, please submit a structured abstract (limited to one abstract per first author) via our online submission system located at If your abstract is accepted, you will be notified and asked to create a poster to display at the event. Authors (or their designated co-author representative) are asked to remain with their poster for part of the poster session, responding to questions from interested observers.

Posters should highlight recently completed research or community public health work. Please note the following changes from previous years: 1) We will only accept one submission for each first author; 2) Posters describing public health in action will not be submitted separately, please submit under the general research submission link; and 3) the abstract text should not exceed 250 words.

Organizing faculty will review abstracts and make selections for the poster session. Authors will be notified by March 9, 2018. Contact Vickie Saddler at or at 858-822-6549 if you have general questions.

We hope to see you there!
