Speaker RFP Overview

OAND is requesting proposals for educational sessions that focus upon this year's theme "OAND is Connected:  From People to Practice."  

Ohio Academy members have expressed interest in education sessions focused on the following areas. Please review this list and think about how you can submit an education session proposal that falls into one of the three broad categories or one of the more narrowly defined areas within each category.

  • Diversity and inclusion (e.g., cultural competence, career pathway, disability, implicit bias, interdisciplinary practice, interprofessional education, mentorship, multigenerational, recruitment, student connection)
  • Informatics and technology (e.g., blogging, CMS regulations, coding, data management, electronic health record, medical technology, social media, software design, telehealth)
  • Policy and advocacy (e.g., consumer protection, legislative issues) 

If you are a polished speaker with new research-based content to share with our attendees—who has not presented at our conference the past two years—please consider submitting a proposal. All proposals must be submitted online, and must be received by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, October 15, 2018.  No e-mailed proposals will be accepted this year.
