Successful APHA Pre-Conference Workshop!

A big thank you to all of those who attended the 2016 Community Based Primary Health Care APHA Pre-Conference Workshop! We had over 50 attendees who came to learn more about CBPR to improve global health inequities in community-based health, 7 student abstract presentations from emerging leaders in the field, and 1 incredible working group team of speakers and support personnel! We could not have done it without you!

Stay tuned as we will have a recording of the conference that will be live for those of you who were not able to attend.

We are already looking forward to next year!
