Is there a Research Poster Session for 2020?

Due to the challenges of hosting a Poster Session virtually we have elected to postpone our Poster Session for 2020 and hope to resume Poster Presentations in 2021. We will begin accepting new abstracts for the GMHC 2021 starting Dec 1, 2020 through May 1st, 2021.  The poster session is designed to give attendees an opportunity to informally present and discuss their research with colleagues.  We will be  accepting abstracts involving research in any area of healthcare missions (including but not limited to medicine, nursing, behavioral health, public health, dentistry, OT/PT). You can find out more information and submit your abstract here.

Can I get a receipt for my registration?

Yes, you can actually access your receipt by logging in to medicalmissions.com with the account you registered with and then selecting your personal "Dashboard" from the drop down when you hover over your profile picture on the top right hand side of your screen.  You will see a heading titled "Upcoming Events You Are Attending" and from there you have access to your event ticket and receipt.

What if I can't attend all of the virtual GMHC? Will I have access to sessions after the conference is over?

Yes!  Even if you are not able to attend all of the virtual GMHC, all of the content from breakout and plenary sessions will be made available to you immediately after the conference.  You will have access to these sessions indefinitely making this year's conference a huge value!

What time zone will the virtual conference follow?

The virtual GMHC 2020 schedule will follow the Eastern Standard Time (EST) zone.

How will I access the virtual event?

You will just need to log into your medicalmissoins.com account and the entire conference will be hosted on our website.  We will have more specific instructions coming the week of the GMHC.
