The Society for the Analysis of African American Public Health Issues (SAAPHI) is soliciting abstracts for the 2015 annual scientific symposium to be held in Chicago, IL on Saturday, October 31, 2015 at the Black Caucus for Health Workers and the SAAPHI pre-conference meeting. The overarching theme of this year’s pre-conference meeting is Health in All Policies”.
Topics of the abstracts should center on the SAAPHI/BCHW themes and/or the APHA 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.

All abstracts will be peer-reviewed, evaluated, and ranked for originality, quality, topic applicability, and relation to SAAPHI issues. Please address how your research can inform current or future policies. If your research project includes an intervention, please address its sustainability. For secondary analysis, please address how this research can influence or inform current or future policies.
*Students and early professionals are especially encouraged to submit abstracts pertaining to their academic research. Please designate in your submission whether you would like your abstract to be reviewed for an oral presentation, poster presentation, or both.

Awards will be presented following delivery of the presentations and posters at the 2015 SAAPHI annual meeting.  Winners must be members of SAAPHI or become members at the time of the meeting.
