Submit a Research Poster

Research Posters are a visual way to present research findings at a scientific or professional meeting.


Our 2020 Poster Session is now open!

Abstract submission deadline is April 15, 2020

The Massage Therapy Foundation (MTF) is pleased to assist the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) with the 23rd annual MTF Poster Session at the 2020 AMTA National Convention in Phoenix, AZ, from August 27-29, 2020.

Posters are an important way for massage therapists and researchers to share their expertise with other members of the profession. MTF encourages participation in this event to create a forum for informal discussion of research, and to provide attendees with the opportunity to learn how research impacts the profession. Foundation Poster Sessions provide a showcase to share massage therapy research with over 1,000 expected convention attendees.

The 2020 MTF Poster Session will include posters from three categories: original research, programmatic evaluation, and clinical case presentations. Posters should include research findings, photographs, charts and diagrams, and be accompanied by an abstract. Share you work and help inform and inspire other massage therapists!
