Accessibility Policy

It is the policy of the American Public Health Association (APHA) to hold events (meetings, conferences and professional gatherings) where physical and communication barriers do not exclude people with disabilities from attending and participating.

Technology-based/Technology-dependent Presentations

The Health Informatics Information Technology Theater (HIIT) Center is an environment for live presentations of information and computer technology applications for public health. The meeting room is equipped with internet access, and video projection and stereo audio. For more information and detailed requirements click on the program below. (Please note there are a very limited number of openings).

Film Festival

Short or feature length films should be submitted to the APHA Film Festival. The Film Festival is held in a meeting room with theater-quality video projection and stereo audio. For more information and detailed requirements click on the program below. (Please note there are a very limited number of openings).

APHA encourages film/video submitters to caption their videos so that deaf and hearing impaired registrants can fully participate in the Film Festival. While all public health related films are welcome, special consideration will be given to films that are captioned or will be captioned prior to the Annual Meeting.

E-ssentialLearning (expanded Access to Annual Meeting Sessions)

PowerPoint presentations and voice recordings of oral scientific sessions are synced and uploaded to the APHA website after the meeting. Packaged as E-ssentialLearning, Annual Meeting attendees may purchase the system providing unlimited access to hundreds of presentations. Oral session presenters who do not wish to have their presentation recorded and included in E-ssentialLearning may opt out.

For more about E-ssentialLearning go to
http://www.apha.org/meetings/sessions/recordedpresentations.htm

Continuing Education Requirements

As an organization committed to providing quality continuing education (CE) activities to its membership and meeting registrants, APHA must adhere to the requirements of various accrediting bodies and professional organizations with which it collaborates. APHA has made CE credits/contact hours available in a variety of professional disciplines. Each discipline has its own unique requirements of educational activities, and of the organizations that provide them. Because APHA strives to make as many of its educational activities as possible eligible for CE, it is essential that the presenters (authors, faculty, etc) meet all CE requirements and follow discipline-specific regulations.
