APHA Annual Meeting

People often say attending the APHA Annual Meeting is the highlight of their year. It can be even more rewarding when you get more involved. Here are some opportunities to become an integral part of the 2017 Annual Meeting and Expo in Atlanta. 

Submit an abstract — Deadline Feb. 20-24
Welcoming abstracts related to all areas of public health, including those that coincide with the theme “Creating the Healthiest Nation: Climate Changes Health.” View instructions and tips on how to submit an abstract!

Organize a pre-conference Learning Institute — Deadline Feb. 10
Help your colleagues gain practical skills in public health practice by conducting a Learning Institute. These full- or half-day skill-building courses offer an interactive educational experience. Proposals that address competencies such as biostatistics, epidemiology, data management, public health informatics and systems thinking are encouraged. 

2016 Annual Meeting Presentations
While you work on your abstract for the 2017 Annual Meeting, consider taking a look at presentations from APHA’s 2016 Annual Meeting. APHA recorded presenters during sessions and synced their voice with the movements of their presentation. These recordings, packaged as RAMP, are now available for sale. We hope you will submit an abstract and join APHA in Atlanta!

Walking is one of the easiest ways to improve your health — and it’s more fun if we do it together. That’s why APHA invites you to participate in the 1 Billion Steps Challenge. You can create a team and compete with one another or against other teams.

You can sync your step counting device or enter steps manually if you don’t have a device. So register today, and let’s get walking! We’ll have a lot of fun, improve our heath, and walk more than any other team! Join today!

February Webinar
February 14, 2017
12:00-1:00PM MT

Description: Join us for a Valentine’s Day discussion about the role of built environment and parks and recreation in public health.  Learn how early forward thinking professionals shaped how we look at nature, parks and physical activity in urban areas, and how these early movements set the stage for linking health to the built environment and public parks and rec. Travel through time, looking through a health equity lens, to our current opportunities to connect and collaborate for viable experiences (i.e. physical activity, nutrition, community gardens, obesity prevention, and shade) for the health of our communities.  What’s not to love?
