New for Discover USC 2024
All presentations will be poster presentations.
Each poster presentation may have a maximum of two presenters.
Presenters may present up to two posters.
For medical scholars, only one poster is allowed per session, so medical scholars who wish to present two posters must present one in the morning
session and one in the afternoon session. To reduce paper waste at the event,
nametags will not be printed for mentors at Discover USC 2024. Mentors are encouraged to bring a nametag issued by USC or Prisma Health to identify
themselves. (Mentors are eligible to receive a boxed lunch with their employer-issued
nametag.) Discover USC organizers ask that presentations not be made a requirement for all students
in an academic class (if it is not a requirement already).
