Infection Control Update

APHA is keeping a close watch on the evolving COVID-19 situation, and protecting the health and safety of our attendees is paramount. All in-person Annual Meeting attendees and contractors must be fully vaccinated and must wear a facial mask during all indoor activities at APHA 2021. Read our latest health and safety update from APHA Executive Director Georges Benjamin, MD, and make plans to join us in Denver or online.

Beware of Scams

Tech-savvy scammers are reaching out to our attendees claiming to sell attendee lists; this is a scam! APHA exhibitors may purchase mailing lists or request to have an email sent out on their behalf. APHA does not give out attendee email addresses. APHA's Exhibits Manager, Edward Shipley, manages all mailing lists. If you receive an email from anyone other than Edward, please do not respond.

Thank you to our Annual Meeting sponsors!
