Conference Abstract Submission Application

Thank you for your interest in presenting at the Great Lakes Association of Child Life Professionals 15th Annual Conference. Our annual conference will be held Friday, November 6, and Saturday, November 7.
This year's theme: It Takes a Village: Successful Collaboration Improves the Healthcare Experience.
 
All abstract submissions are due Friday, May 22, 2020, by 11:59pm EST.
 

Submission Guidelines:

- Presenters are limited to two abstract submissions, in total, per conference.
- GLACLP uses a blind review process for the abstract reviews.
- Presenters and institutions must NOT be identified by name or description in the abstract, outline, or summary. Please do not use a specific program name that is attributed to your hospital (think of it like something that is ‘trademarked’ or ‘copyrighted’ to your program). You may use "this author," "this program," or "this hospital," in your submission to avoid disclosing yourself, your institution, or your program.
- If you, your institution, or program is named, your abstract will not be reviewed.
- Each abstract must be written in narrative form, meaning in the third person.
- Presenters shall not sell or promote any particular product or service at any time during the presentation. 
- If your abstract submission does not follow the current submission guidelines, your submission may be eliminated from the review process.
