#APHA2021: Creating the Healthiest Nation

October 22nd, 2021 | Event


After a year of remote conferences, the American Public Health Association (APHA) is hosting its annual Meeting and Expo on October 24 – 28, 2021, where public health professionals from across the nation can convene, learn, network, and engage with peers. This year’s theme, “Creating the Healthiest Nation: Strengthening Social Connectedness,” will highlight how public health policies and practices can help counter social isolation by strengthening social cohesion and connectedness.

In addition to our range of posters and presentations, we are thrilled to partner with APHA to lead the Social Media Lab. The Social Media Lab will provide attendees with technical assistance and information on best practices for using social media to advance public health through a number of presentations. You can also schedule a free one-on-one meeting with an expert for any specific needs, which you can sign up for.
