Using visual abstracts in presentations

This past Saturday I gave a talk at the ACP of Michigan on SGLT2 inhibitors.

The talk went well, except my HDMI to thunderbolt converter failed in a big way and I had to export the presentation to Powerpoint and run it off a Windows Machine. Yuck.

I used visual abstracts from EMPA-REG and CANVAS as a significant part of the presentation. This segment demonstrates how I used them. What killed me was the cool animation, where the third panel flips to reveal the renal outcomes, was handled with complete incompetence by PowerPoint. Otherwise PowerPoint did a pretty good job displaying my slide, but botching my favorite animation in the entire presentation is bordering on unforgivable.

Here are the two visual abstracts in question:

This slide isn’t in the above video. I will eventually get the whole presentation up, but I love this one so much I had to share.

Speaking of sharing. This Wednesday, Dr. Christos Argyropoulos will kick off the first Tubular Talk with a presentation on SGLT2 inhibitors. Should be great check out all of the details at GlomCon.
