Deadline: June 15, 2010
ICAA will have a poster session which will bring together emerging scholars work that demonstrates how issues of disability, caregiving and long-term care policy profoundly impact the health and long-term care of Mexican-origin people in late life. Health disparities are complex and multifaceted, thus, organizers hope to begin an interdisciplinary discussion of the unique situational factors and cultural behaviors that interact to impact the health and functioning of aging Mexican Americans. Research along these lines will inform specific public health interventions related to disease prevention and ultimately inform public policy decisions that will protect the health of aging Latinos. Up to five individual poster submissions will have their travel accommodations provided.
Poster Presentation Guidelines
Posters should include the abstract, introduction to the general topic and the reason the work was done, followed by an explanation of the methods, presentation of results and a clear conclusion of the contribution of the work to the discipline. The poster should be easily readable from a distance of 6 feet. The poster should not exceed 36'' horizontal x 48'' vertical.
