Call for abstracts 2020

Fraser Birrell Posted by Fraser Birrell on 5 Feb 2020 / Comments



Ahead of our annual conference in June 2020, the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine is once again calling for members to submit poster presentation abstracts.

The BSLM annual call for abstracts is your chance to share your practical, real world examples of how you are using the tools and techniques of lifestyle medicine to find new ways to treat, manage and even reverse chronic health conditions. As well as examples directly from the clinical setting, we are also keen to hear about your scientific research and evidence-based projects. Examples from the world of public health are also welcome.

This is your opportunity to share with fellow clinicians and health professionals the pioneering work you are doing to further the lifestyle medicine movement. Tell us how your work is benefiting both patients and clinicians - and how it is helping us to stem the rising tide of chronic disease.

We are looking for examples of work which are original and new and which are making an important contribution to the emerging discipline of lifestyle medicine.

While many applications will represent success stories, negative studies can also add to our collective understanding and knowledge base. What we are looking for is evidence of critical discussion of methodological strengths and weaknesses.

Head to bslm.org.uk/call-for-abstracts/ for details of how to apply.

The call for abstracts is a competitive process with our Science & Research Committee making the final decision on which applicants will be invited to present a poster at the BSLM2020 conference.

Student scholarships

New for this year, we are also are also making available a number of Student Scholarships to eligible undergraduate and postgraduate students to receive a complimentary registration to British Society of Lifestyle Medicine 2020.

This means you will be able to attend the BSLM2020 conference free of charge and will enjoy membership of BSLM free for an additional year.

Applicants are asked to submit an abstract or original piece of work (between 1500 – 2500 words) to the Conference committee for consideration. Suitable original pieces include articles, case studies or discussions that address one or more of the conference themes.

Again head to bslm.org.uk/call-for-abstracts/ for details of who is eligible and how to apply.

Good luck - and we look forward to receiving your applications in the coming months.
