    Please join us for the Maine Public Health Association's 2018 Annual Conference, "Addiction and the State of Public Health in Maine." MPHA's annual conference is the largest statewide meeting dedicated to public health in Maine. We attract 300+ public health professionals from across the state, and feature the latest science, policy, and programming related to public health in Maine.

    Call for Abstracts!

    Maine is struggling with an addiction epidemic. In 2017, there were 418 opioid overdose deaths. Our youth tobacco use rate is higher than the national average for the first time in years. The prevalence of obesity among adults is 30%, and among children ages 10-17, it's 28%. As the state struggles with curbing the tide of addiction, we have lost lives and missed opportunities. Across the state, law enforcement personnel, educators, religious leaders, health care providers and many others are coming together to address this complex epidemic of addiction. The Maine Public Health Association wants to hear from you -  about your research, policies, programming, collaborations and experiences with addiction, and about the work you and fellow Mainers are doing to improve the wellbeing of our people and places.

    Abstracts are 300 words, and due by 5:00pm on Friday, July 6. We will confirm conference presenters by August 1. To learn more and to submit an abstract, please visit our Abstract Submission Site. Note: Please review the full application before submitting.
