Research Presentation Day award recipients will be selected in the categories of Clinical Research and Basic Science. The First Place recipients will be slated for automatic poster presentation at the NESS 95th Annual Meeting. First Place recipients and runners-up will also have the option to have their abstracts reviewed by the NESS Program Committee for consideration of oral presentation (Podium, Brief, or Specialty Session) at the Annual Meeting. These authors will be notified of this option and will need to notify the NESS administrative offices of their willingness to have their work considered for NESS Annual Meeting oral presentation within two weeks of their selection as award recipients.
