Past and Future Annual Meetings

The first APHA Annual Meeting took place in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1873. Since then the Annual Meeting has come a long way. See a full historical list (PDF) of Annual Meetings.

Starting in 2000, Annual Meeting programs and abstracts became digital. Programs, abstracts and virtual expositions are available online from past meetings. For abstracts from Annual Meetings prior to 2000 contact the APHA Archivist Karla Pearce at 202-777-2423 [Thursdays only].
