ASBH 19th Annual Meeting – Call for Proposals

The ASBH 19th Annual Meeting will be October 19-22, 2017, in Kansas City, MO.  Come join more than 1,200 healthcare professionals, educators, consultants, and others who have an interest in the field of clinical and academic bioethics and the health-related humanities.



The call for proposals will close at 11:59 pm Pacific Time, Friday, March 3, 2017.  There are now five presentation formats.


3.5 Hour Session
These sessions are usually offered as extra-cost events before the beginning of the annual meeting proper. Pre-conference sessions usually focuson teaching content knowledge, developing a skill, or assisting members with a project. Your description should address why the content is best presented in a 3.5 hour timeframe; why the target audience will come to the meeting early and pay more for this session; the methods you will use to build skills or transmit information; and the specific expertise or background that qualifies the faculty to teach this workshop.


90 Minute Session
90 minute sessions are designed for instruction and interaction and may be used for workshops or longer panel presentations. Presenters may engage and involve the members of the audience for a significant portion of the session in small group activities, breakouts, role play, audience feedback, or discussion of cases or other content, design of materials and models, and similar forms of interactions. These sessions are limited to 4 presenters, preferably from multiple disciplines and institutions.


60 Minute Session
The ideal 60-minute session compares and contrasts a variety of perspectives on a cohesive theme or includes presentations that are cross-disciplinary and build on one another.
