2016 Best Poster Award Recipients

This year’s Best Poster Competitions drew 114 participants, up from 66 presentations in 2015. The posters were judged on criteria including the paper’s scientific merit; evidence that the research conducted was innovative and practical; the strength of the conclusions; the relevance of the study to managed care pharmacy practice; the clarity of the material; and the knowledge of the author regarding the subject matter during his or her presentation.

 

The 2016 recipients are:

  • Best Student Pharmacist Poster Award: Leann McDowell, MS, University of California, San Francisco, “Cost-effectiveness of nivolumab-ipilimumab combination therapy compared to monotherapy for metastatic melanoma from a U.S. societal perspective.”
