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 14, and Friday, March 15, during the 2019 Convocation at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando.
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, the Postgraduate American Academy of Osteopathy 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 student poster categories: original research, single case study, and education and public health.
Poster judging will take place Thursday, March 14, 2019, 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 16. Judges earn Category 1-A CME for participating. Indicate your willingness to volunteer by March 10 when you register for Convocation. For more information, contact AAO staff liaison Debbie Cole at DCole@academyofosteopathy.org.
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.

On Saturday, July 21, the AAO was one of four recipients of the American Osteopathic Association’s 2019 STARs (Strategic Team Award and Recognition) for its dedication to advancing osteopathic medicine. The STARs recognize contributions made by state, specialty and regional affiliates, colleges of osteopathic medicine, osteopathic postdoctoral training institutions (OPTIs), and nonpractice affiliates that have advanced the osteopathic profession. The award honors programs and activities that align with the initiatives in the AOA’s strategic plan.
