The 2024 ASPPH Annual Meeting for Academic Public Health features three plenary sessions. These sessions serve as the cornerstone of collaborative engagement, bringing together diverse stakeholders, experts, and thought leaders. As focal points of the annual meeting, our plenary sessions aim to inspire, inform, and unite participants, setting the tone for productive collaboration and the pursuit of common goals throughout the event and beyond.
Our Friday morning plenary session features an inter-sectoral panel discussion with representatives from academia, government, and industry on the role of their institutions in advancing knowledge and understanding of health disparities and identifying mechanisms to improve minority health and reduce health disparities. This session aims to foster a deeper understanding of the challenges at hand and inspire collaborative solutions.
