Presenting Research in Compelling Ways: A Student Competition

The following is an announcement from AcademyHealth about a student competition for which I will be a judge.

AcademyHealth along with its Translation and Communication Interest Group will formally kick-off the second Annual Student Competition, “Presenting Research in Compelling Ways: A Student Competition” with a Google Hangout on Wednesday, January 28 from 4 – 4:30 p.m. EST. This competition will be held during our Annual Research Meeting (ARM) in Minneapolis, June 14-16, 2015. Students will present on the same prominent and recently published HSR study. Presenters will be given a time limit and creativity will be a focus. There will also be cash prizes awarded at the ARM to the top three presentations. Students may use various creative presentation styles such as PechaKucha, PowerPoint, Presentoon, Prezi, “Shark Tank” and more.

Student members and Student Chapters of AcademyHealth are encouraged to attend. At the conclusion of the Google Hangout, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the format and guidelines of the Student Competition
  • Learn helpful hints and best practices from last year’s competition winner
  • Hear from Translation and Communication IG Member and the competition’s moderator, Dr. Felicia Mebane, regarding various options of presentation styles

As an added bonus, those who participate in the Hangout will be the first to learn which published HSR study has been selected for this year’s competition piece. You won’t want to miss this great opportunity to get a leg up on your fellow competitors! The link to the Hangout may be found by clicking here. Please confirm your attendance by accepting the invitation. Feel free to share the invite with other student members of AcademyHealth who might be interested. (Note: A Gmail or Google+ account is recommended as Google users can post questions and RSVP before the event.)

If you’re not an AcademyHealth member, students may join AcademyHealth for $40/year and take advantage of free educational webinars, learning development and networking opportunities, competitions like this one and more. Contact for more information.
