2021 Student Poster Presentation


Are you a student at a New York (or surrounding) University or College?

Are you passionate about public health?

Do you have an interesting paper, project or research study to share that has not been previously presented?

Are you competitive and wish to represent yourself and your school?

If so, then you should apply for the 2021 Student Poster Presentation

Date:  Friday, April 30, 2021

Time:  12:00 - 2:00 PM  (live and virtual)


Here is your chance to compete with other students from public health programs in New York (and surrounding states) to highlight and share a health promotion / prevention issue with other professionals across New York.  

Design a poster that has a specific focus in public health; following the theme of the 2021 NYSPHA, NYSACHO and CEHD Public Health Partnership Conference:  Air, Water, Food: Protecting Where We Live, Work, and Play, or an area of interest to you and relevant to other conference attendees.

Specifically, we are accepting student poster abstracts for presentations on the following topic areas:

  • Air (tobacco, asthma, climate change.)
  • Water (drinking water, emerging contaminants, HABs, sugar-sweetened beverages)
  • Food (insecurity, breastfeeding, food safety and sourcing)
  • Housing/Built Environment (lead, walkable communities, complete streets)
  • Environmental Health- Innovations in Policy & Practice 


Posters will be judged by NYSPHA Board Members on the following criteria: relevance to the conference theme, engaging for health professionals, originality, educational value, and overall presentation.

Student posters will be selected for presentation at the conference from all submitted entries.

Students who are selected to present their posters will receive a free conference registration.

If your poster is selected for display, you must attend the conference remotely to present your poster.

To enter simply complete the entry form and follow the instructions for submission. Entry forms must be received by March 31st by 5:00 PM.  Decisions will be made by April 12th and we will provide you with logistical instructions.  We hope you will consider submitting a poster - we look forward to seeing you in late April.
