And lastly a personal tip from yours truly, always write your abstract out first BEFORE you go to submit it online! I have lost more abstracts than I care to remember when I accidentally close the browser or there is a site glitch.

You can download a basic word template I use HERE or make your own based on the image below.

I hope to see you in San Diego next August!
