2023 ACPNJ Scientific Meeting Abstract Competition

This year we had 161 submissions. All submissions were reviewed and judged by a team of physician members who recommended which abstract should move forward to the final round as part of the 2023 ACPNJ Scientific Meeting. Everyone is commended for the scholarship.
