Dornsife Faculty and Students Present at APHA 2018
November 6, 2018
On Sunday, November 11th, Dornsife’s faculty and students will kick-off a series of presentations and events at the American Public Health Association’s (APHA) 2018 Annual Meeting and Expo – Creating the Healthiest Nation: Health Equity Now. The meeting is the ideal setting for the exploration of the critical urban health and equity issues that are at the center of the research conducted at Dornsife.
For Dornsife’s 27 APHA presentations, the School’s faculty and students will address a broad range of issues in public health including: methods of addressing the opioid epidemic; improving health and economic security for low-income families; equitable approaches to nutrition in communities that experience health disparities; and the impact of race on key health issues. In addition, a Dornsife team will lead a session on the important role cities play in ensuring health equity.
A Dornsife Dean’s Reception will be held on Tuesday evening, November 13th, for alumni, friends, and other guests. And, faculty from Dornsife’s department of Community Health and Prevention, along with other APHA and San Diego organizations, will host a Candlelight Vigil for Border Health, Equity, & Human Rights.
