APHA 2021 — Creating the Healthiest Nation: Strengthening Social Connectedness

At a time when it’s more important than ever for the public health community to share the latest science, best practices and lessons learned, we are planning a 2021 Annual Meeting that offers attendees the choice to gather in person or participate online. 

APHA 2021 Annual Meeting & Expo Denver Oct. 23-27 Creating the Healthiest Nation: Strengthening Social Connectedness

We are continuously monitoring the pandemic and will not hold an in-person meeting if it is not safe to do so. We hope to be able to safely gather in October, but whether in Denver or online, APHA 2021 attendees will have access to high-quality scientific sessions, inspiring presentations from public health leaders and many opportunities to connect with peers.

APHA 2021 — Oct. 23-27

The Call for Abstracts is open! We welcome abstracts from all areas of public health but also encourage submission related to the 2021 meeting theme, "Creating the Healthiest Nation: Strengthening Social Connectedness." Submission deadline: March 21 (some deadlines may be extended).

The Call for Learning Institutes is open! Learning Institutes are concentrated, skills-based continuing education courses held during the Annual Meeting. We are seeking proposals that clearly use active learning strategies to help participants strengthen skills and/or improve their practice. Submission deadline: March  5.

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. Mailing lists are managed by our Exhibits Manager, Lynn Schoen. If you receive an email from anyone other than Lynn, please do not respond.
