Abstracts for Clinical Evidence (ACE) Scientific Poster Presentations
Directed by Dr. Pohlman, Parker Seminars and the Parker Research Center also hosted the second Annual Abstracts for Clinical Evidence (ACE) program at Parker Seminars Las Vegas. This program was prepared by an international team of clinicians and scientists using the latest digital poster technology, iPoster, which is an online multimedia, virtual poster platform allowing for high-quality, rigorous research to be displayed interactively.
ACE presents various topics, such as chiropractic, neuroscience, nutrition, and human performance. Presentation types included case studies/case series, literature/systematic/scoping reviews, and original research (clinical trials, epidemiology/health service research). This year, attendees even voted for the People’s Choice Award!
