2021 Call for Proposals has ended. Speakers will be notified of their submission status by June 1.

If you would like to submit a speaking proposal for other content opportunities in 2021, please complete the application form and submit it to shsmd@aha.org

2021 SHSMD Connections Conference will take place in-person, September 19-21, 2021 in San Antonio, TX with a virtual component for those individuals who may not be able to travel.
We look forward to seeing you and are confident that we can deliver an exceptional conference, filled with quality content and networking opportunities, while following the CDC guidelines to ensure everyone is safe. For additional information around our safety plan in San Antonio, click here.
If you have new approaches, best practices or groundbreaking insights to share, SHSMD invites you to submit a speaking proposal for SHSMD Connections 2021 as well as other virtual conferences and educational programs during the 2021 year.

SHSMD is especially interested in submissions that are focused on these topics of interest, which includes new cross-disciplinary topics, and those related to pandemic recovery and rebuilding. 
Proposals should be flexibly written so that presentations can be readily updated for potential use later in the year.
