Why wait? Register now!

Who doesn't like to save a few pennies? Especially when it comes to the largest gathering of public health professionals in the world — APHA's 141st Annual Meeting!

I know, I seems like we just wrapped up last year's Annual Meeting in San Francisco. But when it comes to the Annual Meeting, with its hundreds of scientific sessions and more than 13,000 expected attendees, it's never too early to get a head start. So click on over to the Annual Meeting site, where registration and housing are now open for this year's meeting, which takes place Nov. 2–6 in Boston. And early-bird savings are in effect now through Aug. 22.

This year's Annual Meeting theme is "Think Global, Act Local," with a focus on best practices around the world. Meeting sessions will highlight some of the most innovative and creative public health interventions from across the globe. Of course, the meeting will also offer sessions from every discipline within public health, celebrations and social gatherings, special speakers, social media meet-ups, poster sessions and so much more. Just a couple of this year's notable presenters include Opening Session speakers Sarah Weddington, who argued Roe v. Wade before the Supreme Court, and internationally acclaimed epidemiologist Michael Marmot.

And keep checking back here at APHA's official Meetings Blog for more updates in the coming months. Or you can just sign up to automatically receive email updates from us. How easy is that?
