To effectively promote and communicate results of research presented at a meeting, a poster must be organized in a clear, easy-to-read, and attractive format. This webinar will discuss how to develop a poster from an abstract and will include tips about text, figures, and overall format to create a well-organized and attractive presentation. It will also include ‘short-cuts’ to make creating a poster and manipulating its components easier for the presenter.

At the conclusion of this webinar, attendees will be able to

  •  Organize an abstract into a poster to create an effective presentation and recognize why some things ‘work’ and some things ‘don’t work’ when information is presented as a poster.
  • Describe effective methods for presenting text and figures and for organizing their poster layout for national and international meetings, including tips for best placement of information.
