Session and Poster Proposals Open September 21, 2019

Online Submission Form


The CAAHP 2019 Program Committee would like to invite you to submit a proposal for concurrent sessions and posters for our regional conference in Chicago, IL March 20 – 23, 2019.


This year’s theme is "Second to None: Striving for Excellence in the Second City". We are looking for a variety of proposals to help answer and dialogue such questions as:

  • How do we help students demonstrate and pursue excellence? (Wellness, Academic & Personal Competency Development) 

  • How do we provide excellent resources and services to all? (First year – Graduation, Alumni, Low-Income Students, Transfer, Athletes, Returning Adults, Underrepresented Individuals in Healthcare, etc.)

  • What defines excellence in Pre-Health Advising? (Assessment & Evaluation)

  • What does excellent partnership look like with other entities? (Other Campus Offices, Community Partnerships, National and Local Organizations and Health Care Professionals)


This year’s conference provides the opportunity for 45-minute or 30-minutes concurrent sessions and CAAHP conversations, which are 15-minute TED-style presentations. In addition to the concurrent sessions, we will again host a poster session that will run concurrently with our annual silent auction.


Proposals will be reviewed and selected based on their relevance to the conference theme and potential for engaging participants and sharing expertise.   


In recommending which proposals to accept, the Committee will seek to ensure that sessions include not only relevant content but help audience members apply the idea or information to their own work. Collaborative, versatile and creative proposals that stimulate discussion and engage participants are encouraged.
