The coronavirus pandemic is a rapidly evolving public health emergency. We are thankful to have thousands of knowledgeable and skilled professionals in the field working around the clock to stop the spread and prevent further infection.

At this time, we are fully committed to holding the meeting in San Francisco, Oct. 24-28, as planned. We remain hopeful that this crisis will have abated with ample time to spare before APHA 2020.

We have received over 9,300 abstracts, and the abstract review process is underway. Our Expo is 64% sold out, and we continue to welcome new exhibitors and sponsors. We anticipate that we will be on track to open registration and housing on June 1.

The health and safety of our attendees and staff are of paramount importance. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak and will post updates regularly to keep you informed. In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy and check back here for updates regarding APHA 2020. Visit APHA’s COVID-19 page for resources and helpful links.
