APHA’s 70th annual meeting will be held May 9 –11, 2018 at the Crowne Plaza in Little Rock, Arkansas. The theme of this year’s meeting is Pathways to Health Equity: A Glance at the Social Determinants of Health, Health Policy and Advocacy.

The objectives of the annual meeting are:

3. Enhance multidisciplinary interaction and team development among public health professionals.

4. Provide innovative approaches/considerations for minority and medically underserved populations.

During the three-day meeting, public health professionals will discuss industry trends, emerging issues, and proven methods.

Attendees will be able to choose from multiple education sessions, enabling them to customize their schedule to best fit their public health interest.
