The Conference Committee invites submissions of abstracts from practitioners, academics, researchers, and policy makers from all areas of medical, dental, nursing, pharmacy, mental health, behavioral, public health, developmental, social, genetics, sciences, medical ethics, complementary and alternative medicine, as well as other related allied healthcare fields whose work has impact on health and wellbeing.

The theme of this Congress is “Uniting for a Healthy Future.”  This theme highlights the importance of an integrated approach to healthcare, and we encourage presentations which promote this perspective.  Both research and non-research presentations (i.e., an overview lecture of a health related topic) are welcome.  Participants who wish to give a presentation at the Congress are requested to submit an abstract of their research or a synopsis of their lecture for review by the Scientific Committee.

Advanced registration pricing will end on May 1, 2013. 

All abstract authors will be notified of the acceptance of their abstracts prior to May 1, 2013 so that they may take advantage of advanced registration pricing.
