The 2018 Annual Meeting & Symposium will feature several oral and poster presentations for all attendees.
Proposals are now being accepted from those who wish to present at 2018 District V (MAATA) meeting. Our goal is to provide Athletic Trainers and other Allied Health Care Professionals from all settings with an opportunity to disseminate information through a poster format. Deadline for all abstract submissions is 5:00 PM (CST) on Friday, December 7th, 2018. Once submitted, each abstract will go through a blinded peer-reviewed process by at least 3 content reviewers. Letters of notification will be emailed to the primary/submitting author starting December 21st, 2018.
NOTE: Only abstracts submitted online through this form will be accepted.
- Posters will be displayed for a specific amount of time on Thursday, Friday and/or Saturday.
