CALL FOR ABSTRACTS — APHA's 2019 Annual Meeting and Expo

Socialist Caucus

Meeting theme: Creating the Healthiest Nation: For science. For action. For health

Submission Deadline: Thursday, February 28, 2019

The Socialist Caucus of the American Public Health Association (SCAPHA) has been actively engaged in the fight for social justice and public health since 1975. We invite submissions with a critical political perspective on the impact of global capitalism on health, health care, wellness, prevention, the food system, community organization and the environment. Topics may include social class, race and racism in health and health care, the role of corporations in health, health care, the food system and the environment, progressive perspectives on women's health issues, and on the health of marginalized populations, the movement for national health care and, in general, the struggle for health and justice in the United States and around the world. We would like to invite abstracts to be presented during the proposed following sessions. Proposals for complete sessions are also entertained.
  • Progressive perspectives on women's health
  • Race and Racism's effect on health and health care
  • Social class and health
  • The health of marginalized communities
  • The movement for national health care in the US
  • The role of corporations in health and health care
The Caucus welcomes submissions from progressive voices who wish to share their vision at the 2019 conference, and especially encourages students and young professionals to submit proposals. When submitting a session proposal (not just a single abstract), please individually submit all abstracts to be included in that session through the web submission process and inform the program planner via e-mail that you have organized a complete session (see address below). The e-mail should include the name, address, phone number and e-mail address of the session organizer, the title of the session, a list of the individual abstracts to be included in the session, their presenters, and the web ID of each individual abstract. For more information, please e-mail Martha Livingston.
