There's now a little more time to get those abstracts submitted! Some great abstracts have come in so far and we want to see more of all the outstanding work going on in our section. If you've already submitted your abstract, the deadline to make any changes is also February 28th.
The Public Health Social Work Section of the American Public Health Association invites submissions for presentations for the 2019 American Public Health Association Conference in Philadelphia, PA (November 2nd-6th). The theme for the 2019 conference is “Creating the Healthiest Nation: For science. For action. For health.” This theme expands on our 2018 theme “Health Equity Now!”, reflecting the importance of addressing the intersectional social justice issues that influence health access and equity for our most vulnerable and marginalized communities.
This section encourages those individuals who have never presented at APHA to become "new presenters" in 2019. Students and new professionals are encouraged to submit abstracts for either poster or oral presentations. Be sure to indicate "new presenter" and/or "student" on your submission.
We will also be sponsoring several Public Health Social Work 'Student-Only' Sessions and especially encourage MSW/MPH dual degree students to submit abstracts!
We are soliciting abstracts on original research that have implications for Public Health Social Work practice, policy, and leadership. Abstracts are encouraged in a range of substantive areas. The submission should include completed work that uses scientifically sound quantitative or qualitative methods. Abstracts can be proposals for oral presentations, poster presentations, symposia, or roundtables. We asked that you select one of the following cluster areas to help us in contextualizing your important work:
Poster Sessions: (60 minutes)

Oral/Panel Sessions: (90 minutes)
There are two types of oral presentations:
