Since 2012, Dr. Ramesh Sachdeva has led the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) as associate executive director. Also involved in education, he concurrently serves as a professor of pediatrics at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Outside of these roles, Dr. Ramesh Sachdeva belongs to several professional organizations, including the American Public Health Association (APHA), which will hold its Annual Meeting & Expo from November 4-8, 2017.
The APHA’s 2017 Annual Meeting and Expo will have a theme of Creating the Healthiest Nation: Climate Changes Health and will take place at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. In addition to offering valuable networking opportunities with more than 12,000 public health professionals from around the world, the event will feature several educational sessions, including APHA Learning Institutes, the Applied Public Health Statistics Luncheon and Lowell Reed Lecture, and scientific and poster sessions.
Businesses looking to gain exposure to public health professionals can sign up for a booth at the event’s Expo, which will offer valuable opportunities to build brand awareness through product sampling. By participating in the Expo, businesses will also get to interact firsthand with decision makers in the public health sector.
Those who cannot physically attend the Annual Meeting and Expo can attend key presentations virtually through live broadcasts or view them on-demand after the event. This year’s key presenters include Eriel Tchekwie Deranger of the Indigenous Climate Action and Queen Quet of the Gullah Geechee Nation. The APHA will also record some scientific sessions and interviews of thought leaders in the area of public health.
