Academic and Practice Linkages in Public Health Caucus Soliciting Abstracts for 2020 APHA Meeting

The Academic and Practice Linkages in Public Health Caucus is soliciting abstracts for the 2020 APHA Meeting to take place October 24-28 in San Francisco, CA with the theme: Creating the Healthiest Nation: Preventing Violence.

This caucus is soliciting abstracts on a range of substantive areas. The submission should include completed work that translates knowledge into practice through training, technical assistance, research, and preparing for accreditation and showcases the bridge between academia and the public health workforce.

Abstracts can be proposals for oral presentations, poster presentations, or roundtables. We ask that you select one of the following cluster areas to help us in contextualizing your important work.

Topic areas for the 2020 APLPHC sessions are as follows:

Public health academicians and practitioners within public health institutions (e.g., federal, state, regional, local, private sector or non-profit organizations) that administer or participate in academic and practice partnerships are encouraged to submit abstracts. Preference may be given to submissions from Academic and Practice Linkages in Public Health Caucus members; ASPPH members; and/or staff of a PHAB accredited health department.

Abstracts are due Feb. 20th by 11:59 pm (Pacific). Visit the APHA website for additional details.

The Academic and Practice Linkages in Public Health Caucus, sponsored by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) in partnership with the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB), provides a forum for APHA members to explore and discuss innovative approaches and effective interventions that support practice, education, and applied research by building bridges between academia and practice.
