CALL FOR ABSTRACTS — APHA's 2020 Annual Meeting and Expo

Socialist Caucus

Meeting theme: "Creating the Healthiest Nation: Preventing Violence"

Submission Deadline: Monday, March 2, 2020

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.
  • Capitalism and Corporate Misbehavior and Our Health
  • Health Reform and the Struggle for National Health Care in the US
  • Progressive Perpectives on the Health of Women and Marginlized Populations
  • Race, Racism and Our Health
  • The Struggle for Health and Justice in the US and Around the World.
The Caucus welcomes submissions from progressive voices who wish to share their vision at the 2020 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.
