Poster Showcase

Practitioners, Academics and Students participated in the Poster Showcase in both the competitive and non-competitive divisions. The participants in the competitive division showcased their posters during an evaluation session before a group of judges on Monday evening during the Annual Conference. The participants were evaluated on the content and display of their poster, as well as their oral presentation of research and findings. New this year, several IAEM-USA Caucus & Committees displayed a poster highlighting the great work of their group over the past year. The participants in the Competitive Division received the following recognition:
