18 Feb

2016 SAAPHI CALL FOR ABSTRACTS


The Society for the Analysis of African American Public Health Issues (SAAPHI) is soliciting abstracts for the  2016 annual scientific symposium to be held in Denver, CO on Saturday, October 29, 2016 at the SAAPHI pre-conference meeting.

The overarching theme of this year’s pre-conference meeting is  Creating the Healthiest Nation: Ensuring the Right to Health

Abstract topics should center on the theme. While abstracts reflecting new and innovative information in any area of public health disproportionately impacting African Americans will be reviewed, presentations on the following topics are of particular interest:

  • Life Course Research (focusing on populations from birth to the elderly)
  • Gender Issues
  • Research focusing on African Diasporic Populations (African-American, Afro-Latino, West Indian and African populations)
  • Social Determinants of Health

In addition, abstracts that reflect integrative approaches to individual and community health promotion using evidence-based research, intervention guided-research, and health policy advocacy are also encouraged.

submission deadline:  April 29, 2016
