APHA LiveThe APHA Annual Meeting & Exposition is an annual tradition for many of us. It’s an opportunity to surround yourself with thousands of people who also know the uphill battles you fight to improve public health and share the joy in serving those in need. The Annual Meeting is revitalizing, re-energizing and invigorating — almost like a public health retreat where you leave excited to put your new ideas into action.

But sadly, traveling to the Annual Meeting just isn’t an option some years. And if that’s the case, we’ve got you covered, including a way to experience some of the personal interaction so valued at the Annual Meeting.

APHA Live is the next best thing to being in Atlanta for the Annual Meeting. A virtual version of the Annual Meeting’s premier sessions, APHA Live consists of more than 19 hours of live-streamed and on-demand broadcasting. Between Sunday, Nov. 5, and Wednesday, Nov. 8, APHA Live will bring you 13 career-building presentations, including the Opening General Session, Monday General Session and Closing General Session. Hear from leaders in the field, learn best practices and earn up to 16.5 continuing education credits.

Four sessions will allow APHA Live viewers to participate in a Q&A with presenters:

  • “Climate Change & Health: The 21st Century Challenge” on Monday, Nov. 6;
  • “Built Urban Environment 2.0: Where Climate Change Policies Converge,” also on Monday, Nov. 6;
  • “Climate Change, An International Perspective,” featuring a panel of experts joining remotely to forgo travel-related greenhouse gases, on Tuesday, Nov. 7; and
  • “Climate Emergency: Preparing for the Worst,” also on Tuesday, Nov. 7.

APHA Live will offer sessions on climate preparedness, strategies for workers affected by climate-related conditions, and an overall perspective on this year’s Annual Meeting theme of “Creating the Healthiest Nation: Climate Changes Health.”

Registration fees for APHA Live are $99 for APHA members, $199 for non-members and $449 for group registration. An amazing deal, group registration allows up to 100 colleagues access to APHA Live for an entire year. Plus, each person can earn up to 16.5 continuing education credits. For the best experience, organize a Watch Party and pull your team together to listen, learn, and share ideas and reactions with each other.

Seven Steps to a Successful APHA Live Watch Party

  1. Register your group for APHA Live.
  2. Decide who to invite.
  3. Find a room large enough for your group and ensure you have the necessary audio-visual equipment for everyone to see and hear.
  4. Send out invitations.
  5. Popcorn anyone? We all love refreshments. Consider asking people to bring something healthy to share.
  6. On the big day, listen, learn and brainstorm new ideas with each other.
  7. Share your group registration code with the group so that they can rewatch a session or catch sessions that aren’t part of your Watch Party.

There’s still time to register for the Annual Meeting — and we’d love to greet you in Atlanta! — but if you can’t make it, please join us virtually.
