Announcing an opportunity to submit an abstract or workshop to the International Conference on Communication in Healthcare which will be in Chicago in October: http://www.medicine.northwestern.edu/icch2011
The abstract deadline is March 31. If your work intersects with communication in healthcare (e.g., patient/physician, physician/physician, patient/community, inter-professional communication, professionalism, humanism, etc etc), we would encourage you to submit either an abstract or a workshop. Also, really good ideas (even if you don’t have data yet) often fare well in terms of getting accepted. The bottom line is that the milieu at this meeting is fantastic, there are often many of the folks who originated the field of healthcare communication walking around, and everyone is approachable. It is a great opportunity for networking and career advancement.
