There’s no substitute for the in-person event experience, the APHA 2022 program offers ample educational and networking opportunities to engage, collaborate and grow to meet your professional goals.
Meeting Theme: 150 Years of Creating the Healthiest Nation: Leading the Path Toward Equity
Creating health equity, meaning everyone has the opportunity to attain their highest level of health, is a guiding priority and core value of APHA. As we celebrate 150 years of APHA, we recognize the tremendous advancements in science and policy APHA and its members have facilitated to improve the health of all U.S. residents. Yet despite these advancements, persistent health disparities remain. We must continue to confront and acknowledge racism and bias in the U.S., allowing that acknowledgement to shape our interactions with disadvantaged communities. Addressing inequity is essential to APHA’s mission of achieving the healthiest nation in a generation.
The Annual Meeting includes hundreds of scientific presentations and posters on all topics of public health. View the Online Program to search all the sessions and events taking place at 2022. The call for abstracts for 2022 is closed.
