Emerging Scholars Sessions (max 4.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits)

New in 2020, the ‘Emerging Scholar Lecture’ series was designed exclusively for junior and early career annual meeting attendees. These sessions provide the opportunity for junior and early career members to present in front of a full virtual audience amongst their peer group. Sixteen presenters showcased their research during one of four ANA2020 Emerging Scholar Lecture Series sessions. All presentations were judged by ANA Fellows based on a set of criteria established by the Scientific Program Advisory Committee.
