2017 Theme — Creating the Healthiest Nation: Climate Changes Health
Climate Change is happening today and it undeniably poses many risks to our health, making it the greatest public health challenge. As public health professionals, we need to work towards safeguarding all communities against climate risks by protecting people’s health, wellbeing, and quality of life from climate change impacts. One defining aspect of being the healthiest nation means that everyone has the opportunity to prepare for, protect their families from, and rebuild after a climate event. The 2017 APHA Annual Meeting will mark the cornerstone of the Year of Climate Change and Health.
APHA 2017 is the largest public health meeting in the world. During the four-day meeting, more than 4,000 scientific abstracts will be presented, offering countless opportunities to share and learn valuable information. Also included in the meeting is the Public Health Expo, the most significant gathering of industry providers in one place at one time. Thousands of public health professionals from public health, higher education, health departments, local, state and federal government, and global health come together to make APHA's Annual Meeting and Expo a must-attend event.
