APHA's Annual Meeting theme is decided each year by the APHA Governing Council (after review by APHA's Science Board) to provide direction for the general session, scientific sessions, exhibiting companies and design. Many of the scientific sessions focus on the theme. But sessions will cover all aspects of public health, including those outside the theme. APHA is committed to reducing the environmental impact of the Annual Meeting and finding ways to be more environmentally responsible. Check out our green initiatives!
As public health professionals in the 21st century, we strive to create the healthiest nation. We build on three core principles that guide our work — science, to identify ways to prevent and treat disease, and to make the healthy choice the easy choice; action, to use our minds, our hearts, our feet, our experience and our diversity, collectively, to promote change and defeat health challenges; and health, to ensure health equity and access to care for everyone, in every community.
Everyone has a role to play in creating a healthier nation. In light of today’s most pressing health issues, science and advocacy are the keys to developing health equity to improve the lives of people locally, nationally and worldwide.
APHA identifies and shares innovative strategies to demonstrate how cooperation between organizations, governments, communities, public health disciplines and the public can improve health outcomes. And we will continue to use evidence-based research to transform a sick care system to one of prevention and wellness. The Annual Meeting gives more than 12,000 public health professionals an opportunity to put science and action to work to achieve a healthier nation.
