The Louisa Burns Osteopathic Research Committee (LBORC) and the National Undergraduate Fellows Association (NUFA) are calling for submissions to their annual Research Poster Presentation. Posters will be displayed in the exhibit hall on Thursday, March 22, and Friday, March 23, during the 2018 Convocation at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas.
The LBORC-NUFA Research Poster Presentation is open to osteopathic medical students, interns, residents, researchers and practicing physicians. An author of each poster must be a member of the AAO or the Student American Academy of Osteopathy. The primary author must be present during the poster judging at Convocation. All presenters should register for Convocation to gain access to the presentation area.
Ram’s head trophies will be presented to SAAO members who win first place in each of the three poster categories: original research, single case study, and education and public health.
Poster judging will take place Thursday, March 22, 2018, between 6 and 7 p.m., and winners will be announced at the student awards ceremony and at the president’s banquet on Saturday, March 24. Judges earn Category 1-A CME for participating. Indicate your willingness to volunteer when you register for Convocation.
Primary authors will be asked to sign an AAO copyright agreement so that the Academy may publish all of the posters on the AAO’s website. Signing the agreement does not prevent investigators from submitting full articles on their research to peer-reviewed journals, such as The AAO Journal and The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association.
Giving Tuesday was celebrated for the first time in 2012. We encourage you to make your Giving Tuesday plans in the spirit of thankfulness that sometimes gets buried by the holiday advertising.

The AAO’s Louisa Burns Osteopathic Research Committee (LBORC) is seeking research applications involving health care outcomes in the practice of osteopathic medicine, with an emphasis on using osteopathic manipulative medicine or treatment (OMM/OMT) in patient care.
