Annual Meeting Press Information

The 2013 APHA Annual Meeting & Exposition, themed "Think Global, Act Local," presents an opportunity to learn about creative and successful public health efforts from across the globe and discuss how public health workers can adapt such efforts to the communities they serve at home. The theme will focus on best practices around the world.  

Journalists attending the meeting, Nov.2-Nov.6, 2013 in Boston, will glean research and knowledge first-hand from experts who will address the leading challenges to public health and explore strategies to confront health issues around the globe. It is a wonderful networking opportunity.

Public health researchers, academicians, policy-makers and practitioners will present more than 4,000 scientific papers at over 1,000 sessions focusing on the latest public health challenges, including oral presentations, roundtable workshops, poster sessions and panel discussions.
