I took it upon myself to remind you of the APHA call for
abstracts since the deadline is rapidly approaching. Purely
selfish on my part since I'm helping out with the Film Festival
again this year and want to see as many of you there as I can.
Since I could not find my copy of the call from APHA, I went to
their Web site and copied this text to give you an idea of what
they want. Their suggestion of getting your abstract pulled
together ahead of time is a REALLY good one. Then just cut and
paste into the Confex database. Saves time, yelling and hair
Note that you do not have to present on EBPH but it always helps
if you can tie what you are doing to the theme.
The American Public Health Association is now accepting
contributed abstracts for the 133rd Annual Meeting (November 5-9,
2005), New Orleans, LA. The theme of the meeting is: Evidence
Based Policy and Practice.
Abstracts must be limited to 250 words or less. Please develop
your abstract off-line before accessing the online submission
form. Use the spell checking and word count features of your word
processor to check the text of the abstract before submitting it.
Two-page summaries (if required) must be less than 2000 words.
Learning objectives must be described. Each contributed paper
must be categorized under one of the topics or areas of interest
described in the call for papers. (Most sections/SPIGs/caucuses
offer a topic selection called "Other"). Deadlines for submitting
abstracts are listed below. Authors are encouraged to submit
abstracts on current and emerging public health issues. The
abstracts being submitted should not be published prior to the
APHA Annual Meeting (Wednesday, November 9, 2005).
An abstract can only be submitted to ONE Section, SPIG or Caucus.
You do not need to be an APHA member to submit an abstract,
however, if your abstract is accepted for presentation you MUST
become an APHA Individual member and you MUST register for the
Annual Meeting. Submission of an abstract implies a commitment to
make the presentation at the annual meeting.
As an organization committed to providing quality continuing
education (CE) activities to its membership and meeting
registrants, APHA must adhere to the requirements of various
accrediting bodies and professional organizations with which it
collaborates. In the past APHA has made CE units/credits/contact
hours available in a variety of professional disciplines. Each
discipline has its own unique requirements of educational
activities, and the organizations that provide them. Because APHA
strives to make as many of its educational activities as possible
eligible for CE, it is essential that the presenters (authors,
faculty, etc) meet all CE requirements and follow

Note the deadlines in the left column. Don't delay or it will
take you forever to input your abstract as everyone submits at
the last moment. Hope to see you in New Orleans! Yum!
