New for the SAHM 2018 Annual Meeting, the program committee is accepting proposals for Hot Topics in an effort to broaden opportunity for the hottest and most relevant presentations. 

The deadline to submit a Hot Topic proposal is November 6, 2017. Ready to submit?

Each Hot Topic presentation will be 15 minutes: 10 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for questions.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed. Review criteria will include:
  • “Hotness”- current relevance and recent developments
  • Relevance to adolescent and young adult health and medicine
  • Clarity of proposed content
  • Documented expertise of the presenter in the proposed content area
  • Transdisciplinary relevance
  • Global relevance
  • Diversity and inclusion - supports SAHM’s goal to be inclusive of diverse populations
