2021 Call For Abstracts

2021 Call For Abstracts

Abstract submission has ended.

The Colorado Public Health Association invites you to submit an abstract for our annual Culture of Data Conference to be held virtually in two half day sessions, April 8-9, 2021.

The Culture of Data conference is designed to strengthen the use of data to support the CPHA vision of creating the healthiest Colorado for everyone by:

  • Highlighting data sources and methodologies to identify and measure health disparities
  • Sharing innovative data dissemination practices that make data accessible and useful
  • Cultivating relationships and partnerships between data owners, practitioners, and policymakers both in public health and related sectors

The theme of the 2021 conference is Public Health at the Confluence of Current Events. Some of the most impactful current events of the last year have emphasized the importance of public health and its intersection with many other sectors of society. Namely, the COVID-19 pandemic and racial justice movements have shown how social determinants of health impact individuals’ and communities’ abilities to thrive.

The conference planning committee is seeking submissions that highlight key current events and demonstrate the use of data to address public health challenges such as COVID-19, climate change, and health inequities. Because these issues require interdisciplinary action including sectors from urban planning to education to criminal justice, we are seeking submissions related to the use of data sources or partnerships beyond traditional public health sources.

The conference will include two presentation formats and we are accepting abstract submissions for both types:

  • Lecture style with Q&A (15-30 minute presentations plus time for questions)
  • Skill building workshops (1 – 1.5 hours; we encourage presenters to utilize breakout groups and hands-on learning activities in these sessions)
