The 2022 NSH Convention will take place October 13-19, 2022.  The purpose of the NSH Convention is to provide an interchange of ideas pertinent to histotechnology and to advance professional growth, standards, knowledge, and performance in histotechnology through continuing and formal educational programs.

The program will cover both clinical and research histology topics and will have a variety of presentation styles:
  • Workshops - standard 60 minute lecture format with lecture and Q&A
  • Express Talks - 15 minute lectures that explore a single idea illustrating a troubleshooting tip, management tool or technique demonstration
  • Learning Labs - hands on trainings that provide the opportunity for attendees to observe and practice skills 

All session abstracts must be submitted electronically through the form linked below by February 4, 2022.  Session abstracts received after the deadline or with incomplete information will not be considered.  Presenters can "save and edit later" during the submission process.   

Learning Labs 
Learning Labs are hands on trainings that provide the opportunity for attendees to observe and practice skills. After your have gained the foundational knowledge from presenter lectures you will use materials, equipment etc to conduct the hands on elements you observed in the first part of the course.  Not all Learning Labs will require the use of scientific materials, however you may be asked to conduct a project or exercise in the session.  All Learning Labs are intended to be participatory whether they include exercises, hands on projects, small group discussion - or a combination of these formats. 

Speakers wishing to submit a hands on training session must include a description of all equipment, chemicals and reagents or planned interactive exercises at the time of submission.  If the submission is missing this information it will not be considered by the committee.  All speakers who are selected to present a Learning Lab must follow the safety guidelines for workshops created by the NSH Health & Safety Committee. 

Speaker Policies
Before submitting your abstract please review NSH's speaker polices. All chosen speakers will be required to abide by the speaker policies including those on handouts and funding.
