2022 ACPNJ Virtual Abstract Competition

This year we had 221 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 ACPNJ Virtual Scientific Meeting. Everyone is commended for the scholarship.

Congratulations to our 2022 winners and all who participated in this year's competition!
