Poster sessions will be held on Thursday and Friday mornings, Oct. 4 and Oct. 5.

Presenters are asked to please leave their posters up throughout both sessions. They may be taken down at the conclusion of the retreat. Dimensions of posters should not exceed 4' x 4'. Poster boards with pins and numbers will be provided.
