The symposium was an opportunity for Stanford investigators to share their work widely at Stanford and beyond to a broader audience in the maternal and child health community.

There were three accepted abstract categories:

  1. Accepted Abstract: All accepted abstracts will be invited to participate in a moderated poster session. Poster presenters will have the opportunity to speak about their work and answer attendee questions during the Poster Session.

  2. Groundbreaking Research from Rising Scientists Session: Five abstracts will been selected for oral presentation at the symposium

  3. Community-Engaged Research Partners Session: Two Community-Engaged Research (CEnR) focused abstracts will be selected to present with their community partner during the Community Partners Q&A session

*All Stanford individuals were encouraged to submit an abstract, whether or not you and the research were funded by MCHRI.*
