The final program becomes available online a couple of weeks prior to the Annual Meeting and will also be provided to all registered attendees upon checking in at the registration desk at the Annual Meeting.


Does SRNT provide any awards or discounts of any kind?
SRNT provides complimentary registration to all attendees who live and work in low-, low-middle, and high-middle income countries (as defined by the World Health Organization).  A limited number of travel awards are available; please check the website periodically beginning in October to find out about scholarship opportunities in a given year.

Paper and poster abstracts submitted for presentation must be based on empirical research and report actual (not promised) results along with relevant statistics and significance values. In contrast, abstracts for informational sessions such as seminars, panel discussions and symposia might include empirical and/or non-empirical contributions.
