"We invite submissions for individual paper presentations, posters, and coordinated panel discussions on topics concerning ethics and public health. You do not need to be a current member of the Ethics Section, or a professional in ethics, to submit an abstract. Accepted presenters must become APHA members prior to the Annual Meeting.
The Ethics Section encourages submissions from academic researchers, public health practitioners, and current students. Abstracts that are framed to fit with the 2022 theme (“150 Years of Creating the Healthiest Nation: Leading the Path Toward Equity”) are especially encouraged, but all submissions addressing public health ethics are welcome.
History of Public Health and Public Health Ethics
The celebration of the sesquicentennial of APHA is an opportunity to stop and reflect on how far we have come. How have public health challenges been faced in the past? What do we share in common with different eras of public health practice, and what has changed? Contributions on this topic could explore how public health has changed over time, how public health ethics as a subarea has developed, or how professional societies specifically create opportunities for generating shared values, such as the Public Health Code of Ethics.
