How Perinatology Can Be a Leader in Equitable Care from Public Health to Rare Diseases

See past poster presentations from 2020 and 2022.

CLOSED for 2023

The National Perinatal Association invites you to submit proposals for poster presentations for consideration as part of our annual conference.  

We believe that everyone has the right to high-quality, respectful care. And we believe that the perinatal period is the time when we can build a foundation for a lifetime.


We know that the care we deliver during the perinatal period has the potential to change lives.

When we help people preserve their reproductive health, have healthy pregnancies, and care for themselves postpartum, we help empower them to take agency of their own health and wellbeing.

When we invest in care for newborn dyads, infants, and children, we build healthier communities.

We believe that perinatology is at its best when we both:

  • address the unique health care needs of each patient, parent, and infant to improve the lives of individuals and families

  • serve the public health needs of our community to improve our collective health and wellbeing.

We are looking for poster presentations that relate to studying this topic or addressing such issues through research, institutional and community-based programs or public policy.

Posters may describe contributions to theory, policy development, program development and evaluation, delivery of services, or research. 

We are particularly interested in presentations focusing on community-specific, family-centered, and culturally-informed approaches. 

Priority will be given to presentations that incorporate the role of families and self advocates in policy and service delivery.

We highly encourage that every poster presentation include parents as partners and co-presenters.

We encourage the submission of posters previously presented at State Perinatal Associations meetings. Presentations previously presented at other scientific conferences are also invited.

There are 3 categories for submissions:

  • Innovative Models of Care

  • Applied or Basic Research
