Spirit of 1848 social justice & public health student poster session
Tuesday, November 5, 2013: 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.
This session seeks posters submitted by students that focus on the links between social justice and public health, including but not limited to posters that address the Spirit of 1848’s theme for 2013: “The Politics of Global Climate Change: Social Justice, Sustainable Economies & Ecologies, and Health Equity.”
We accordingly are seeking abstracts from students of public health and health-related programs, as well as enrolled in programs focused on ecological well-being, including urban planning, environmental sciences, forestry, fishery, and wildlife management, agriculture, meteorology, etc. The abstracts should highlight the intersection between social justice and public health from a historical, theoretical, epidemiological, ethnographic, and/or methodological perspective (whether quantitative or qualitative). We welcome abstracts on topics ranging from public health research to public health practice to student-initiated courses on connections between social justice & public health. The work presented can be global, country-specific, or local.
-- We encourage students at ALL levels of training to submit abstracts, whether undergraduates, master students, MPH students, medical students, or doctoral students; submissions will be judged in accordance to expectations appropriate for each level of training. Postdoctoral fellows are NOT eligible to submit posters.
-- Abstracts should focus on furthering understanding and action to address the ways that social inequality harms, and social equity improves, the public’s health. Examples of social inequality include inequitable social divisions within societies based on social class, race/ethnicity, nativity, Indigenous and immigrant status, gender, and sexuality, as well as inequitable relations between nations and geographical regions.
-- For APHA 2013, we encourage abstracts that critically examine global climate change in relation to the social determinants of health in research and practice. In particular, we are interested in submissions that link issues of global climate change with public health, health equity, and social, reproductive, and environmental justice, at the local, national, or global level. We also continue to welcome abstracts that address any aspects of links between social justice and public health, including those not related to global climate change.
Session Objectives: Describe posters submitted by students that focus on the links between social justice and public health, including but not limited to posters that address the Spirit of 1848’s theme for 2013: “The Politics of Global Climate Change: Social Justice, Sustainable Economies & Ecologies, and Health Equity.”
