You can attend this meeting in person or virtually. You can register for the meeting via this link ($40 ACP resident members and $100 for nonmember residents).

The meeting features a poster competition. Posters are accepted into these categories:

The deadline for submitting electronic posters is 11:59 pm PT on Sunday, September 5, 2021. You will also need to create a voice-over PowerPoint and submit it at the same time. All posters will be judged by a panel of judges. Finalists will be invited to present a poster at the competition on Saturday, October 9, 2021, in Rancho Mirage. Winners at the regional competition will be invited to present at the 2022 ACP meeting in Chicago.

Our very own Dr. Vineet Gupta is one of the co-chairs for the poster competition. He is a wonderful resource. Please do not hesitate to reach out to him with questions!
