The 2011 ASHS Annual Conference

ASHS Primer

To provide students attending the ASHS Conference with basic information on what opportunities are available and how they can reap the most benefits from attending the ASHS conference.
Attending an ASHS professional conference as an undergraduate student or graduate student for the first time can be an overwhelming experience. To help sort out the mystery of where to go, what to do, how to find where the talks are, what can I attend, or even what is ASHS, this workshop is designed to provide basic information on what opportunities are available to students attending a national conference. This workshop will answer student questions about the conference and help guide students to gain the most from their conference experience.
