7th Annual Cultural Competence Conference Call for Abstracts


Feb. 9, 2018 



As part of the 7th Annual Cultural Competence Conference, there will be an opportunity to present a poster on research related to cultural competence and diversity, including research with underserved populations. Abstracts may present new information or information that has already been published or presented at another conference.

Posters will be displayed throughout the day of the conference; however, at least one author is required to be at the poster display for the duration of the poster session from 12:30 to 1 p.m. (Learn more about the poster session, here.) By submitting a research abstract for display, the author(s) agree to be available to present.



Please complete the attached abstract registration and submission forms.

Email the two completed forms as attachments to DiversityInclusionGlobalHealth@ttuhsc.edu by 10 a.m. Jan. 12. No submissions will be accepted after this deadline.


Submission Criteria:

  1. The primary author/presenter must register for the conference.
  2. Each presenter may submit a maximum of two abstracts.
  3. The abstract should contain:
  • A short and descriptive title. Do not include acronyms in the abstract title.
  • A detailed description of the poster (500 words or less):
    • Purpose: A concise statement about the problem under investigation or hypothesis tested.
    • Methods: A concise statement about the experimental methods, qualitative methods, and interventions used, and/or data analyzed.
    • Results: Graphs, charts, tables, images, and bulleted lists are allowed. Specific findings must be included. Broad generalizations or the promise "to be completed" will not be accepted.
  • Conclusions/findings
  • Significance: Potential outcomes.
  1. Abstracts will be accepted for presentation based on the merit of the data presented in the abstract. Incomplete or improperly executed abstracts will be rejected. Submission of an abstract does not guarantee acceptance for presentation at the conference. All decisions by the planning committee regarding which abstracts are accepted for presentation are final.

A panel of reviewers will score all abstracts presented during the networking lunch.
