Submissions should further the Annual Assembly purpose and desired outcome:
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Authors are asked to consider both the impact of their proposed topic or research on underrepresented and underserved populations and its relevance to the diverse groups of attendees. Accordingly, faculty are encouraged to address issues of cultural humility/sensitivity in their abstracts, examples, and presentations. When applicable, faculty are encouraged to describe how issues of cultural diversity and inclusion are considered in their specific aims or session narrative. Authors may also consider the current state of the pandemic, but it is not required.
