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 Presentation 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 and optometry). You can find out more information and submit your abstract here.

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

Yes!  Even if you are not able to attend all of the virtual GMHC, 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!
