Presentations: Providing Resources for Your Session
AHP highly encourages speakers to provide AHP with their presentation and/or handouts for attendees to use during his/her session. The sessions are often evaluated not only by the expertise of the speaker but also on the availability of presentations or shared resources. What constitutes a handout?
       •  A copy of your PowerPoint/keynote/Prezi presentation (Download the AHP Big Ideas PowerPoint template )
       •  A resource from your organization that can be used as a tool for an attendee that demonstrates what you are teaching about
       •  A summary of your presentation

Email your presentation in the PowerPoint format above to speakers@ahp.org so it can be posted on the website for attendees to download before the conference. 
Due June 1, 2017

Note: When you send in your PowerPoint document, we will convert the file to a printable and secure PDF. We will not edit the content of your presentation. You are required to bring your PowerPoint on a flash drive with you to the conference in addition to emailing a copy to AHP so we can post it for attendees. If you are not able to provide your presentation by the deadline, it is your responsibility to bring a generous amount of copies of your presentation in the notes format for session attendees.
