Attending APHA in San Diego this year? Visit us at one of our IH section events or meetings and attend our sessions!

We hope that you are as excited as we are for the 2018 APHA Annual Meeting in San Diego! The APHA Annual Meeting represents the largest delegation of public health professionals of its kind and provides opportunities to learn, network with your peers and participate in meaningful public health discussions.

We believe that the greatest opportunity to get engaged and make the most of your APHA membership is through participation in your APHA Sections or Special Interest Groups (SPIGs), so we strongly encourage you to attend our business meetings and socials.  It’s a great way to network with your colleagues in the field of International Health and learn how to become more involved in our Section.  Below are a few events you may find beneficial to add to your calendar. Check out our complete IH section program list at APHA here: APHA 2018 – IH program highlights
