Reasons to attend apha 2018 in san diego
The American Public Health Association’s 2018 Annual Meeting was proudly sponsored by Abt Associates. Our goal was expressed in this year’s theme, “Creating the Healthiest Nation: Health Equity Now,” which asserts that “everyone has the ability to achieve their highest level of health.” Around the world and in the United States, Abt partners with private and public providers to ensure access to high-quality treatment for medical problems ranging from reproductive and maternal health to malaria and family planning. Our single mission is to improve people’s health.
We spoke on ten panels about everything from health care reform to opioids, and attendees stopped by booth 1606, where they could talk with our experts. By clicking on the picture below, you can see a complete list of our sessions.

The Annual Conference and Public Health Expo of the American Public Health Association (APHA) brings together the world’s largest gathering of public health practitioners each year. Nearly 13,000 people attended the conference, where students and faculty from the college’s Master of Public Health (MPH) program presented and learned about public health research and practices. The 2018 theme was “Creating the Healthiest Nation: Health Equity Now,” and discussions revolved around it.
Every year, the annual meeting kicks off with an opening session featuring prominent speakers in the field of public health – this year’s opening session included US Surgeon General, Dr. Jerome Adams. “The opening session was packed with the most insightful and exciting speakers I have heard,” MPH student Taylor Holsinger reflected. Dr. Adams was able to talk about his current position and priorities in public health, as well as the value of health equity.”
Numerous panels, seminars, and presentations based on the annual meeting theme as well as the wide range of sub-disciplines in public health are held during the meeting. “Throughout the conference, I found it difficult to select which sessions to attend each day because there were so many interesting sessions!” said PhD/MPH student Shelby Borowski. I went to a lot of poster and oral sessions that helped me learn more about public health issues. It was inspiring to hear from so many dedicated public health practitioners about their work.” Kayla Septer, an MPH grad, became interested in health equity after attending a number of workshops. “Moving forward, I certainly have more interest in integrating a health equity factor into my career path,” Septer said. The experience made me more aware of today’s health inequities and inequalities, as well as the need for public health work to fix them.”
