Each year the meeting serves as a platform for Dornsife faculty, students, and staff to network, share research findings, and advance conversations around improving the health and well-being of populations worldwide.

Participants have the opportunity to attend a wide range of sessions, workshops, poster presentations, and keynote speeches covering various public health topics.

APHA 2021

From October 24-27, 2021, faculty, staff, and students from Dornsife presented their work at multiple sessions at APHA's 2021 Annual Meeting and Expo in Denver, Colorado.

The theme was "Creating the Healthiest Nation: Strengthening Social Connectedness." APHA 2021 had hybrid online/in-person schedule that allowed for more participation from the virtual audience, and networking time for both virtual and in-person attendees.

Many faculty, staff, and students had their work featured at the event. Mariana Chilton, PhD, a professor and director of the Center for Hunger-Free Communities at Dornsife, presented on essential factors for achieving lasting food and nutrition security. She discussed how the solution is not more charity food but abolition.

On Monday of APHA, Dornsife co-sponsored this year's APHA Day of Action: Public Health for Public Safety. Attendees virtually toured downtown Denver to observe and discuss the determinants and consequences of racism and public safety inequities in Denver, and heard from the community leaders and programs that are successfully working towards solutions.

Amy Carroll-Scott, PhD, MPH helped to plan this day of action once again. Attendees created buzz on Twitter, and Carroll-Scott shared a framework of public health for public safety by Denver's Task Force to Reimagine Policing and Public Safety.

For the complete list of the Dornsife research highlighted throughout the week, view the school's APHA guide.

Dornsife staff also took part in this year’s exhibition virtually at booth # 134. Virtual visitors could view curated content including videos, student stories and learn more about undergraduate, master’s and doctoral programs at Dornsife.
