APHA Aging & Public Health Section

  • Booth: 248

The mission of the Aging & Public Health Section of APHA is to promote the health and well-being of individuals as they age by improving their health, functioning, quality of life, and financial security.

In its 42nd year, the section has more than 1200 members, and Section members have been recognized by APHA for both outstanding scholarship and outstanding leadership, both within APHA and in the larger academic community. The Section’s membership represents professionals from a variety of fields, including educational institutions, private industry, non-profit organizations, and governmental agencies. Collectively, our work focuses on all aging-related issues that occur across the lifespan.

We welcome all new members whose work or interests relate to aging in some way. Check out our website and follow us on Twitter.  If you are interested in learning more about the Section and ways to get involved, send us a note on the form below and someone will reach out to you after the annual meeting.

    Healthy Aging Through the Social Determinants of Health...

  • This new book examines the link between social determinants of health and the process of healthy aging. It provides public health practitioners and others interacting with the older population with best practices to encourage healthy aging and enhance the lives of people growing older.

    Healthy Aging Through The Social Determinants of Health gives insight into the role that each of these plays in the healthy aging process: health and health care; neighborhood and built environment; social support; education; and economics and policy.
