Template for a 72x42 poster presentation Names, names, names, names, names, names, names Abstract More Images Hypothesis It’s always good to use the largest images you have available for your poster. Avoid images taken from the web and avoid copying and pasting images. Instead try to INSERT>PICTURE>FROM FILE to bring images to your poster. Although PowerPoint is very forgiving when it comes to printing low resolution images, if you scale your images more than 200% after you bring them in, the image quality will suffer. Suggestion: An easy way to see what an image is going to print like is to change your VIEW>ZOOM setting to 100% and look at the images up close. What you’ll see at 100% is very close to what your images will look like when printed. This template uses the Arial family at several text sizes. You can use any typeface you wish but what is used here works well with this poster format. This template uses Arial Black 88 for the title, Arial Narrow 72 for subtitles, Arial Narrow 72 Bold for headers and Arial Narrow 30 for the text body. You can change the text body size up or down if you need to but we recommend that you don’t go too much bigger or too much smaller. Keep in mind that this template will print at 200% its size. Suggestion: If you cut and paste text from Word, or another source onto this document your text will maintain its formatting and you will need to change it so it will match the rest of the text on this page. The guiding hypothesis is that positive correlations exist between health behaviors, practices, and health status and the students’ perceived risk for developing chronic disease (i.e. cancer). Methods • Cross-sectional convenience sample, N=146 • Data collected December 2007 – February 2008 • HBCU students at least 18 years of age • A self-administered 58-item on-line survey • NCI Fruit & Vegetable Screener captures fruit & vegetable Conclusion • Many times the information you want to use in your poster exists on multiple slides in one or more PowerPoint presentations. An easy way to extract the information and bring it in your poster is to go to FILE>SAVE AS>ENHANCED WINDOWS METAFILE . • You will be prompted to choose whether you want to save all or only the current slide as a Metafile • You can then go back to your poster, import the Metafiles, and arrange them on the page as needed. Data Analysis Image source: Background • Self-reported height and weight used to calculate BMI • T-tests examined differences in means, Chi-square for proportions • SPSS for correlation and logistic regression Charts & Graphs: To bring in charts and graphs from Excel, Word or other applications, go to EDIT>COPY to copy your chart, come back to PowerPoint, and go to EDIT>PASTE to paste it on the poster. You can scale the charts or graphs as needed. Suggestion: Press the SHIFT key as you scale your charts or graphs to scale them proportionally..
