February 1, 2019 all-day
Philadelphia, PA
Each workshop will be 1 hour in length.  Presenters have the option of submitting a part 2 proposal for a continued review of information and discussion. Workshops should not include more than two presenters. Panel discussions should not include more than four panelists. Number of participants/panelists should be noted in your proposal.
All proposals should indicate whether or not the workshop will appeal to BeginnerIntermediate or Advanced level participants.
  • Beginner-level workshop focuses heavily on terminology and introducing individuals to T/GNC/NB concepts. The audience for this workshop most likely have never worked with T/GNC/NB communities.
  • An Intermediate-level workshop spends much of the workshop discussing the subject material directly and requires attendees to have some knowledge of T/GNC/NB competencies and issues.
  • An Advanced-level workshop requires attendees to have significant knowledge of T/GNC/NB competencies and issues and focuses on best practices, innovative new practices and complex health issues that affect T/GNC/NB communities.
Proposals for workshops to be presented at PTWC 2019 must be submitted online by February 1, 2019.


Proposal Review

Proposals are reviewed by committees made up of professionals in each perspective field. Considerations for selection include T/GNC/NB competencies, innovation and clarity; research/evidence-based content; audience engagement, and the degree to which the proposal reflects the committee’s commitment to representation across race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age and disability. The committee reserves the right to accept or reject proposals at its sole discretion.

You will be notified by email of the status of your proposal after February 28, 2019.
