Call for Lightning Talk Abstracts

Lightning talks are brief, focused presentations of current work to mobilize CBK. Selected presenters will pre-record three- to four-minute presentations with a maximum of five slides. Abstracts of all accepted lightning talks will be published in the Learning Health Systems open access journal. Some submissions not selected for presentation will still be included in the published set. 


There will be two live lightning talk sessions, during which participants will view recorded presentations and then join the presenters for a live discussion.
