The Michael DeLeo award is presented to the individual that receives the highest score in the poster competition at our annual meeting. The poster committee scores the poster based on abstract, methodology and conclusions, as well as an oral presentation. After careful consideration the panel of judges scores each poster and the average of three scores is calculated. The highest score is announced at the awards luncheon and that individual is presented with the Michael DeLeo award.
