The ASPPH Annual Meeting provides a virtual forum for our academic public health community- leaders, faculty, staff, students, and partners- to convene and engage in discussions around the most pressing public health challenges threatening our local and global communities. ASPPH is committed to presenting timely, relevant sessions and information around these critical public health issues. It is crucial that as a public health community we continue to facilitate important discussions and that we remain dedicated to strengthening our community now and beyond these challenging times. The Annual Meeting encourages opportunities for social connections that advance our shared mission. We are all the voice of academic public health.

Planning for the Annual Meeting is underway. The planning committee, co-chaired by James Mancuso, chair, department of preventive medicine and biostatistics, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences Public Health Program, and Edith Parker, dean, University of Iowa College of Public Health, is working to design an outstanding program with an inspirational slate of speakers to address a range of public health challenges, examine issues related to academic public health, explore structural and systematic racism in academic public health and society, and provide a space for dialogue. In addition, ASPPH is hosting a call for abstracts on topics related to student and career services, development and alumni relations, and marketing and communications.

Stay tuned for more information, including registration details, full agenda, and plenary speakers.

We may have gone virtual, but the networking, learning, and professional growth opportunities remain. Check out our 2019 in-person meeting for a snapshot of what to expect and peruse our YouTube Channel for highlights of last year’s 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting.
