    • These four presenters will be assigned one or more mentors from the WSPID Education Committee/WSPID Research Workshop Faculty, who will assist with developing their presentation prior to the Workshop.
    • Each of these selected Research Workshop Presenters will deliver a 10-minute oral presentation of their WSPID 2023 submitted abstract to the audience of the Research Workshop participants and faculty.
    • Research Workshop participants and the faculty will offer constructive comments and suggestions following each presentation.
    • In addition, to subsidizing the 2023 WSPID Congress registration fee, these four presenters will receive reimbursement to subsidize travel and accommodations associated with the 2023 WSPID Congress; the total support for WSPID 2023 attendance and participation will be determined by the Congress organizers.
