The American Public Health Association (APHA) Chiropractic Health Care Section is now accepting abstracts for late breaker sessions for the APHA 147th Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, PA from November 2-6, 2019.
The deadline for submission of late breaking abstracts for the Chiropractic Health Care section is 11:59 pm (Pacific) on Tuesday July 23, 2019. Those who submit will be notified by email of their status in mid-August.
Late breaker sessions are a forum for presenting research findings and programs that have been completed recently. This is a great venue for student and early career researchers to present their work. Authors with waitlisted abstracts are also welcome to use this time to strengthen their abstract submissions and resubmit (please withdraw your waitlisted abstract either before or at the time of their new submission).
Topics related to this year's theme, “Creating the Healthiest Nation: For science. For action. For health.” and in all areas related to musculoskeletal health, public health education for health professional students, and public health applications relevant to clinical care will receive high priority.
