Winning research posters focus on women’s health, prediabetes and fall prevention

Women’s health issues were popular topics in the NJAFP’s 2018 Scientific Assembly Poster Contest.  Among the winning posters were cervical cancer screening, breastfeeding and hypertension during pregnancy. Prediabetes and fall prevention, two very common issues in family medicine, rounded out the winning posters.

First and Second place winners were selected for residents and physicians.  And new for 2018, NJAFP presented a People's Choice award, determined by online vote.

Congratulations to all who submitted entires and thanks to the hundreds who participated on site and online.
