About ALPHA 2018

ALPHA 2018 is an excellent opportunity to advance research in the life sciences, raise awareness of public health issues, improve health equity and to commend the important work of researchers and health professionals around the world. In fact, the American Nurses Association has declared 2017-2018 as the Year of the Healthy Nurse.

The importance of public health is intertwined with the life sciences and its expansion into other disciplines such as the IT field is yielding groundbreaking discoveries from novel genes and bio-products to cutting-edge nanotechnology, resulting in a transformed science landscape with profound global applications in understanding life, eradicating diseases, securing a more equitable food and water supply/distribution as well as creating novel bio-industries and products. The sheer scope and number of these scientific advances and the never-ending influx of knowledge, while at times overwhelming, both challenge and inspire hope for an improved quality of life for all. With the theme of Global Health is Public Health, ALPHA 2018 aims to raise awareness of the correlation between the life sciences and public health issues.

We welcome submissions of 250 words in English by Friday, May 11, 2018. Click on the submission link below to submit your proposal today!
