This November, more than 12,000 public health practitioners will come together in San Diego to gain knowledge, be inspired and rally around equity and justice in health.
The gathering is APHA’s 2018 Annual Meeting and Expo, which convenes Nov. 10-14 at the San Diego Convention Center for five days of public health science, practice and celebration.
This year’s theme, “Creating the Healthiest Nation: Health Equity Now,” will be a running thread throughout the meeting’s activities, but like all APHA Annual Meetings, the gathering’s hundreds of scientific sessions and events will cover the full spectrum of the public health discipline, from the traditional to the cutting edge.
“This Annual Meeting is going to get at the roots of disparities in poor health and disease and explore the science and partnerships behind moving health equity forward,” APHA’s Executive Director Georges Benjamin, MD, told The Nation’s Health. “With public health science and funding under threat like never before, now is the time to come together and speak for health.”
