APHA Annual Meeting: Call for Abstracts

The American Public Health Association is announcing the Call for Abstracts for the 2010 Annual Meeting to be held November 6-10, in Denver, CO. The theme of the meeting is “Social Justice:  A Public Health Imperative.”

We encourage abstracts in all areas of public health and are also interested in abstracts that focus on the Annual Meeting theme. Abstracts should be no more than 250 words and must include a measurable learning objective.

All abstracts must be submitted online and an easy to use online form will walk you through the process step-by-step. The site is now opened so you may link directly to the abstract submission form through the APHA website at http://action.apha.org/site/R?i=E2Wpa9XlpS1BQVJ56VlmuA or http://action.apha.org/site/R?i=nKuHBfzg9ThQzyHdC7csJw.

Authors must provide complete and accurate contact information in order to be notified of abstract status on June 1. You do not have to be a member of APHA to submit an abstract, however, if your abstract is accepted, presenting authors must become an Individual member as well as register for the Annual Meeting.

The deadline for submission of abstracts range from February 1 thru February 5, 2010 depending on the Section, SPIG, Caucus or Forum to which you wish to submit. All submissions will end at 11:59 pm (Pacific Standard Time) on the due date listed on the Call for Abstracts.

We welcome your submissions and look forward to your contribution at the APHA 138th Annual Meeting in Denver, CO.
