CARPHA Call for Papers for 2014 conference

images-1The Caribbean Public Health Agency has an early call out for its 2014 conference. The theme for 2014 is Chronic Non-Communicable Diseases Through the Life Cycle. There has been an increased focus on the lifespan approach (i.e. from childhood through elderly) to disease prevention and this conference aims to understand how these concepts are incorporated into the Caribbean context. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone conducting longitudinal health communication research to present their findings. The deadline for submission is November 1, 2013. The conference is scheduled for from May 1-3, 2014, in Aruba.
