JSI Experts Join the Conversation at APHA 2017

October 4, 2017

At this year’s Annual Meeting and Expo in Atlanta, GA, November 4–8, the American Public Health Association (APHA) will be highlighting how climate change impacts health. JSI experts will present on topics ranging from addressing climate impacts to strengthening health systems in developing settings to whole person care. They will share evidence-based strategies and best practices for improving public health at local, national, and international levels.

JSI will present on 8 panels and 3 poster sessions. If you’re planning to attend APHA, please join us at the sessions below. Stop by booth #501 to meet JSI staff, get your questions answered, and learn more about our high-impact public health initiatives in the United States and around the world.

If you’re unable to attend, join us on social media! We’ll be sharing live updates on Twitter (@JSIhealth and @JSIhealth_US), Facebook, and Instagram, as well as posting our presentations on SlideShare.
