Learning Brings Us Together. There are so many things to do at APHA's Annual Meeting and Expo, but the educational content truly sets our meeting apart. Thousands of public health professionals share their research, programmatic work and other experiences.
APHA's scientific sessions are presented in three formats:
- Oral: Similar presentations grouped together to create a session.
- Roundtable: An engaging presentation and discussion with a small group.
- Poster: Research information delivered visually on a poster.
Timeline and Deadlines
We are planning a hybrid meeting and hope to gather safely in October. Whether in Denver or online, APHA 2021 attendees will have access to high-quality scientific sessions, inspiring presentations, and many opportunities to connect with peers. This year's meeting theme is "Creating the Healthiest Nation: Strengthening Social Connectedness."
More items and deadlines will be added over time.
We encourage all attendees to register for the full-meeting but offer one-day registrations to those who only want to attend the meeting on specific day. Presenters and moderators can take purchase a one-day registration at the Early-Bird or Advance rate. One-day registrations will be available to general attendees at the Final rate only.
