2008 APHA-SA Call for Abstracts

APHA- Student Assembly (APHA-SA) seeks abstracts from students in public health or related fields on any topic. Abstracts related to the 2008 Annual Meeting theme "Public Health Without Borders" are strongly encouraged.

Student papers should reflect work undertaken while in school, either undergraduate or graduate programs. We also invite abstracts pertaining to public health student issues in general (such as education, curricula, training, employment trends, student leadership, advocacy, etc.) and/or as they relate to the Annual Meeting theme.

Suggested topics include:

  1. Suggested topics include:
    • Current Topics in Student Research - any current research or intervention being conducted by a student
    • Ethical questions & challenges in public health
    • Right to health - ex. access to care, environmental justice (clean air, water, or food), & social justice
    • Sexual and reproductive health - ex. HIV/AIDS disparities, trends in sexual health education, & right to contraceptive choice
    • Student Training and Education - any innovative practices, training, activities, or curriculum at universities
    • Violence & health - ex. war, domestic violence / intimate partner violence, race / religion intolerances, & bullying in schools

Abstracts must be 250 words or less. Please use spell-check and word count features, and have a colleague review the abstract for grammatical errors before submitting. Abstracts will be blind peer reviewed and ranked on importance/originality, description of subject matter, methodology/sound conceptual framework, clarity of content, and overall format of abstract. Individual contributions will be considered for poster and oral sessions.

The deadline for submission to APHA-SA is February 15th, Midnight PST. This deadline is predetermined and may not be extended. Do not wait until the last minute to prepare and submit your abstract because technical difficulties may occur which may interfere with your submission.
