Deadline: Friday, February 26, 2016
We encourage submissions that focus on the annual meeting’s theme, "Creating the Healthiest Nation: Ensuring the Right to Health, " as it applies to Asian American, and Pacific Islander communities. Abstract submissions authored by or in collaboration with Asian and Pacific Islander community-based partners are highly encouraged.
Although we will consider ALL submissions, the 2016 APIC scientific program will highlight work that addresses the annual meeting theme and these emerging public health challenges and priorities:
Aging and Asian and/or Pacific Islanders
Ensuring the Right to Health
Health Education, Health Communications and Health Literacy among APIs
Innovative Community-based Intervention among API population
New Approaches to research among Asian and/or Pacific Islanders
The session topics are preliminary and do not reflect the precise content of the final program. Presenters selected to give oral or poster presentations will be required to register for the APHA Annual Meeting and become an individual member of APHA and APIC. Therefore, individuals should submit an abstract only if they are committed to making the presentations themselves or have a substitute willing to register, attend the meeting, and deliver the presentation.
