Presenter Information

All presenters must register for the conference and pay the registration fee.

Helpful resources for confirmed presenters of this year's Conference on Practice & Quality Improvement.

Uploading Your Presentations to the Conference App

Presenters will upload presentations to the STFM Conference App from a computer or mobile device. A few weeks before the conference all lead presenters will receive an email with upload instructions and a custom link to login to your account. If you cannot find your email or link, contact Ray Jonscher, rjonscher@stfm.org. Please plan on uploading your presentations prior to heading to the conference. 

Be aware that uploading to the Conference App does not automatically place your presentation materials in the STFM Resource Library. If you'd like for other attendees (and yourself) to be able to access your presentation after the conference, please also upload your presentation to the STFM Resource Library at resourcelibrary.stfm.org.
