APHA 2018 Call for Abstracts + Awesome Accepted Abstracts Webinar Materials

By | December 19, 2017

APHA Medical Care Section logoThe Call for Abstracts for the 2018 Annual Meeting of the American Public Health Association is live! Abstracts are now being accepted by the Medical Care Section (as well as the other APHA sections, caucuses, and forums), and the deadline is Friday, February 23, 2018.

On behalf of the Medical Care Section’s Health Equity Committee, we’d like to make special mention of our call for abstracts on the topic of health equity and justice for immigrants, refugees, and migrant workers. You can get all the details and start the submission process here.

To help you prepare your abstract for submission, the Health Equity Committee presented a webinar on December 15, 2017 on the topic of Making Your Abstract Awesome + Getting It Accepted. We had limited spots available for the live event, but we recorded it and are happy to share that recording and the slides below.

    • Part 2 – Information about the APHA submission process, the Medical Care student abstract awards, and more  (21:44; mp3 format, 30.8 MB)

 

Best of luck, and happy abstracting!
