  • Extended Poster Discussion: Posters focused on research, scholarship, and/or clinical innovation focused on veterans.  Poster session is designed to encourage active discussion between presenters and attendees from a wide variety of backgrounds.  Veteran related projects at any stage are welcome, including undergraduate and graduate student research, as well as works by veterans and veteran serving organizations.
