2019 Global Health Conference, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

Category : GLEPI News/Events

Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Global Health Center is accepting abstracts for presentation at our conference, Global Health in Our Own Backyard: Controversies, Initiatives, and Innovations for Our Local Underserved Populations, to be held Oct. 4 – 5, 2019.

Abstracts may be related to any aspect of global child health. This year we are particularly interested in abstracts that highlight serving the underserved in the United States, but we also look forward to showcasing cutting-edge global child health work happening in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC). Abstracts in the categories of original research, program evaluation/public health, quality improvement, clinical care, and personal narratives will be considered.

Please note, personal narratives must include background, summary of experience and key takeaways from your experience of either providing or receiving care in an underserved setting/situation.

Submitted abstracts should address one or more of the following themes:

  • Programs: Developing sustainable programs that prioritize public health and equitable care
  • Lessons: Thinking critically about how to apply both South-North and national lessons to provide better, more equitable care in the United States
  • Advocacy: Increasing awareness of existing disparities in the U.S. and ways to advocate for underrepresented patients
  • Global child health in a LMIC
  • Other topics of interest to the pediatric global health community

Abstract selection process

Abstracts will be selected for presentation based on quality, merit, and relevance to the conference themes. Projects may be in various stages of development. Abstracts will be accepted for either oral electronic poster (e-poster) or oral poster-walk presentation, and acceptance will be determined by an Abstract Review Committee following blinded peer review.

Abstracts will be reviewed for submission based on the following criteria:

  • Relevance of topic
  • Originality
  • Pediatric global health merit and importance
  • Quality of research design and data analysis
  • Quality of conclusions
  • Clarity of writing

Poster Presentation Format

Every accepted abstract will be asked to give an oral poster presentation, either in an e-poster session or in a poster-walk session. Each poster will be assigned to a group by theme. A moderator will be assigned to each group and will coordinate the order of presentations and questions. Regardless of whether a poster is in printed or e-form, presenters will each give a five-minute overview of their work and will have time to take one or two questions. Instructions for the preparation of posters (including format and size) will be provided to the contact author with the presentation acceptance notification in July 2019.
