Dietetics professionals and students (at any level) are invited to submit an abstract for review and presentation during the Texas Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (Texas Academy) Annual Conference & Exhibition Poster Session April 5-6 2024 in Grapevine.
WHAT IS AN ABSTRACT?
An abstract is a brief, written summary (no more than 300 words) of the specific ideas or concepts to be presented, and a statement of their relevance to practice or research. Examples of appropriate work include traditional work such as primary research or secondary data analysis but may also include reports on wellness or nutrition promotion at the workplace or school, literature review, assessment instruments, management projects, or community outreach. We seek projects in foodservice, administration, clinical nutrition, nutrition education, community work, health promotion and wellness, or basic or clinical research. For additional information on abstract writing and poster session displays, refer to the following Journal of the American Dietetic Association articles: August 1993, A poster worth a thousand words; December 2001, Getting your abstract accepted.
