A poster is a graphically based approach to presenting research. In presenting your research with a poster, you should aim to use the poster as a means for generating active discussion of the research.
An effective poster is:
1) Focused - there is a single message
2) Graphic - let graphs and images tell the story
3) Ordered - keep the sequence well-ordered and obvious
Enhance your Wellness
What is the most meaningful and important relationship you will ever have? Your relationship with yourself! When we are critical and unkind toward ourselves, it can negatively impact motivation, mood and energy levels. Kindness and compassion are more encouraging then criticism and judgment.
