The deadline to apply to be a presenter has passed, but we are still welcoming ideas for Panel Discussions!

We may also chose to host panel discussions at the annual conference. These are valuable opportunities to discuss important matters in the field by featuring Q&A with a small group of experts in a conversation around a specific topic.

Do you have an idea for a panel discussion? Let us know using the panel ideas submission form
Please note:

  • MASHSMD is not a pay-to-speak event, nor do we cover speaker fees/travel expenses.
  • Membership in the Society is not required to submit a panel discussion topic or application to be a presenter.
  • All submissions will be reviewed, and those not selected for the annual conference may be contacted for a virtual webinar.
  • For reference, these are our speaker information/guidelines and the required terms.
