Call for Participation: Health Data Science Posters
Our annual Duke Health Data Science poster showcase will be held on Friday, December 8 from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM in-person in the Sarah Duke Gardens Kirby Horton Hall.
We’re excited that this cross-disciplinary event will be hosted by multiple organizations, including Duke AI Health, the Duke Clinical and Translational Institute (CTSI), the Laboratory for Transformative Administration, and the Center for Computational Thinking.
We invite any member of the Duke community to submit a poster topic for participation
Participants can include students, trainees, staff, and faculty.
How to participate
Please submit your poster topic at: https://duke.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3eD7GAdoqiuRQ4m
The preferred deadline for poster topics to be submitted is Wednesday, November 15, 2023, but we will accept topics on a rolling basis.
After you submit your topic, you’ll then receive a poster template with the correct dimensions. You’ll need to submit your finalized poster by Monday, December 4 in order to have it printed. You will have no cost to participate, and we will print the poster at no cost to you.
Poster topics can cover a wide range of potential topics
Health data science is a broad discipline including statistics, informatics, machine learning, data engineering, implementation, process engineering, technology development, and applications. We especially encourage submissions describing experiences with Duke data sources.
Student posters describing class projects (at both the undergraduate and graduate levels) are also encouraged.
This experience is intended to be especially valuable to individuals seeking to gain experience in presenting their work in front of a scientific audience, and the poster itself can become a valuable part of an academic portfolio.
The showcase will include poster judging, with recognitions including best computational thinking poster, and best Good DEEDS (Duke ethical and equitable data science) poster.
About the health data science showcases
This will be our third poster showcase, and previous participants have reported that they gain valuable experience through participation. We invite you to join us! The health data science showcases are directed by AI Health’s Managing Director Shelley Rusincovitch. Please email email@example.com if you have any questions.

April 2023 poster showcase
Directed by Shelley Rusincovitch, MMCi, the showcase featured 28 posters in health data science. This cross-disciplinary event was hosted by multiple organizations, including Duke AI Health, the Laboratory for Transformative Administration, and the Center for Computational Thinking.
Hanxue Gu, a PhD student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department and a member of the Mazurowski Lab won the award for Best Computational Thinking Poster, from Duke’s Center for Computational Thinking.
Hamed Zaribafzadeh, a biostatistician with the Department of Biostatistics & Bioinformatics and the Department of Surgery’s Laboratory for Transformative Administration, won the award for the Best Poster in Good DEEDS (Duke Ethical & Equitable Data Science) from Duke AI Health.
December 2022 poster showcase
Hosted by Ricardo Henao, PhD, and Shelley Rusincovitch, MMCi, the event featured the work of 16 students and fellows. The presenters included members of the HDS fall 2022 student cohort, fellows in the AI Health Data Science Fellowship program, as well as members of AI Health’s Spark Imaging Initiative and Duke Biostatistics & Bioinformatics’s BCTIP program.
