The Lee B. Lusted Finalists Student Prize Award:

Each year the Lee B. Lusted Finalists Prize Student Fund recognizes students’ original research in medical decision making in order to attract the best and brightest young minds to SMDM. The 10 top-ranked student abstract submissions in each category are selected as semi-finalists for presentation during the Lee B. Lusted Finalists Moderated Poster Session. Between 7:00 AM – 8:00 AM, Lusted judges will lead moderated discussions of 5 posters in a single pod. Non-judges are welcome to process with these groups, although we request that all audience members allow judges to ask the first questions and to call on audience members with additional questions. All posters will be available for open viewing between 8:00 AM – 8:30 AM. The top two semi-finalists in each of 5 categories will receive the Lee Lusted award, announced on Wednesday, October 21 at 9:00 AM.
