American Public Health Association (APHA) 2023 Annual Meeting & Expo
Abt Associates is a proud exhibitor and sponsor of the American Public Health Association (APHA) 2023 Annual Meeting & Expo. The theme of this year’s conference—Creating the Healthiest Nation: Overcoming Social and Ethical Challenges—provides us an opportunity to highlight our research on barriers to accessing health care and social services, opioid use disorder, and more as we work to improve health outcomes for all. Our equity team and public health experts will be available at APHA—at our booth and our sessions—to answer questions and share experiences and perspectives on public health.
