If you missed SOMSA this year here are the Academic Posters from the 2017 Special Operations Medicine and Scientific Assembly
There were some truly interesting ideas, research and products showcased on the exhibition floor. If you missed the 2017 Special Operations Medicine Scientific Assembly this year in Charlotte or never made it all the way back to the poster boards, here are the posters from the 2017 assembly. Just like when I took pictures of them last year, my strategy was to quickly snap a pic of each poster to review and reference later. This is a great opportunity to see what is currently being researched around the SOF Med community. If you see a poster that you want to read, just click on it and it will open or download as a high quality picture(some better than others) attachment allowing you to zoom in.
If you have an idea for a poster I highly recommend you put one together. If you are US military you can have your units poster printed and laminated at the TASC print shop on post. If not, Kinko’s can knock it out pretty quick(but not cheap). It’s a great way to share ideas and experiences with the rest of the community. The initial call for abstracts will be in a few months and we will make an announcement on the SOMA Social Media Pages.
If you were an academic poster presenter and you don’t see yours in the deck or want to share a higher quality version, just contact me in the comments below and then you can send me the highest quality picture you have and I will add it.
Basically a science fair for grown up medic nerds. Each of the posters is about 3 feet by 4 feet wide and pinned to giant partition walls.
This was my third time attending SOMSA and each time I seem to be more and more busy with my involvement in the working group, networking and just catching up with buddies I haven’t seen in a while. In the past I would try and naively
