Being virtual doesn't mean you can't connect with your colleagues. Here are ways to meet your fellow public health professionals:

  • Attend live oral and roundtable scientific sessions to communicate directly with presenters.
  • Leave a question on a presenter's discussion board. Oral, roundtable and poster presenters will answer your questions about their research.

Beware of Scams

Tech-savvy scammers are reaching out to our attendees claiming to sell attendee lists. This is a scam! APHA exhibitors may purchase mailing lists or request to have an email sent out on their behalf. APHA does not give out attendee email addresses. Mailing lists are managed by our Exhibits Manager, Lynn Schoen. If you receive an email from anyone other than Lynn, please do not respond.
