Poster Sessions

2024 Poster Session at Health meets Food: The Culinary Medicine Conference


We will hold a poster session at the 2024 Health meets Food: The Culinary Medicine Conference. The deadline for submission will be in mid-March, 2024. Our Chair for the poster review will be Dr. Karen Lindsay.

The Health meets Food Research team is now accepting applications for Faculty, Resident and/or Student Posters.

This is the opportunity to showcase how your site has utilized Culinary Medicine in teaching and patient intervention and for others to learn of the outcomes in your location. Show attendees the many ways in which culinary medicine has been taught, appreciated and used in your patient and student population. Student submissions are highly encouraged.

Poster submissions will be peer-reviewed for academic content and interest by the HMF Research Committee. In addition to publication of your poster and abstract on the website and ability to present the work at the conference, we will evaluate all contributions for the best 2024 contribution. Our judging methods will include evaluation of relevance of the study question, choice of methodology, soundness of results and conclusions, replicability, effectiveness of poster display and importance of the contribution of work accomplished with regard to advancing the field of culinary medicine in education. The winner of this evaluation process will receive free admission to the 2025 annual HMF conference.

Please copy form, complete and submit in Word format. Include a 150 word summary of this activity which will be posted on the Health meets Food website (if accepted) with your actual poster.
