The American Public Health Association's (APHA's) 2018 Annual Meeting and Expo, "Creating the Healthiest Nation: Health Equity Now," will be held in San Diego, CA from November 10th to November 14th. Creating health equity is a guiding priority and core value of APHA. Health equity means everyone has the opportunity to attain their highest level of health. Health equity is a health, economic, human rights and social justice issue that calls for fairness. Health equity addresses inclusion along multiple dimensions, including race, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation and disability.
APHA's Annual Meeting and Expo is the largest annual gathering of public health professionals. More than 12,000 people attend, and thousands of new abstracts are presented each year.
