Use of Personal Assistant
Should you require an aide or personal assistant to help you navigate the Annual Meeting, APHA will register your aide as a complimentary guest. Please contact email@example.com to register your personal aide (name, city and state is required for the badge). Badge for personal aide will be mailed to attendee. Personal aides may attend sessions and access the exhibit hall, but are not able to earn CE credits or to use the electronic message center. If you need APHA to arrange for an aide to help you navigate the meeting, request must be submitted in advance outlining specific type of assistance required. Email requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Message Center Accommodation
In an effort to make the Annual Meeting Program and Abstracts as well as a number of on-site services, accessible to registrants who are visually impaired, APHA has purchased a copy of a screen reading program called JAWS (Job Access with Speech). This program is installed on one computer in the Electronic Information Center located in the Electronic Information Center in the Exhibit Hall (adjacent to Everything APHA).
From this computer, registrants can access the Online Program, message center, personal email, the Virtual Trade Show, the APHA Website and more. JAWS is designed to read aloud text on a computer screen. Please note: It is not a screen magnification program.
Final Program in Alternative Format
Abstracts can all be reviewed online in the Online Program. Be sure to contact email@example.com at least 3 weeks before the meeting if you require the final program in a difference digital format.
