Poster Abstract Submission

The NPA Board of Directors met on June 7 and after an informative discussion it was decided that The NPA's 36th Annual Conference scheduled to be held in October, in Saratoga Springs, NY, would need to be cancelled. While we are disappointed that the conference needed to be cancelled, as health care providers we want to ensure the safety and well-being of all attendees, exhibitors, staff, hotel personnel, etc.

Poster submissions will be accepted until September 6, 2020. No poster submissions will be accepted after that date.

Poster Abstracts can be submitted for:
