The ASPPH-sponsored Academic Public Health Caucus provided a forum for APHA members to showcase and learn about innovations and excellence in education, training, and academic research from both 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. The sessions were well attended.
Topics for this year’s Academic Public Health Caucus presentations included:
In addition, a business meeting for the Academic Public Health Caucus was held on Monday, November 2 from 6:30 – 8:00 a.m. During the meeting, participants reviewed highlights of the 2015 Caucus, began planning for the 2016 Academic Public Health Caucus Call for Abstracts, and strategized ways to build membership and engage Caucus members throughout the year.
We encourage interested APHA members to join the Academic Public Health Caucus through their ‘My APHA’ online portal.
These sessions also qualify for Certified in Public Health, CPH, credits. Attendees who qualify for CPH credits can log on to the portal, and select this session under the provider name, “Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health” to obtain their credits.
We look forward to continuing our sponsorship of this caucus in collaboration with APHA.
