SIG-HLTH Awards

We hope you will consider applying for the 2019 ASIS&T SIG-HLTH Student Poster Award. To apply, inform the SIG-HLTH leadership team that you are a student and will be presenting a poster related to health informatics at ASIS&T 2019 by 1 October 2019. Members of the leadership team will then review your poster at the conference.

Every year we select one to two student posters related to health informatics for an award, which includes a financial prize. The amount of the prize will be announced to the winners after the ASIS&T Conference Poster session. Anyone student is eligible to apply, but we especially welcome submissions from members of the Health Informatics Special Interest Group.

The 2018 ASIS&T SIG-HLTH Student Poster Award winners were: Heejun Kim & Bogeum Cho from UNC-CH who presented, “A Comparative Examination of Factors that Affect the Credibility of Health Information on Social Media” and Beth Strickland Bloch from UIUC who presented “The Values and Design of Emerging Medical Biotechnologies: A Grounded Theory Analysis of TED Talks“.

We hope faculty members will encourage their students to apply.

Sincerely,

Noah Lenstra, Aaron Bowen-Ziecheck, Iman Tahamtan, Maraida Morales, and the SIG-HLTH Leadership Committee
