So Much to Do at APHA

Itâs impossible to attend all of the interesting-sounding sessions at the APHA annual meeting, so now pressed-for-time attendees can catch up on some of what theyâve missed through the APHA Annual Meeting Blog. Kim Krisberg, Bithiah Lafontant, Alyssa Bindman, and Patti Truant are reporting on sessions at the blog; so far, theyâve posted on communicating with reporters,war and public health, how the public health community can address climate change, public health practitionersâ use of new online tools, the lives of child workers, public health preparedness (here, too), and the opening general session. The bloggers also provide some highlights from the Expo and Poster Sessions, and give tips on bringing the public health message to Congress and enjoying some of the DC sights.

If youâre in town for the APHA meeting, several bloggers and readers of The Pump Handle will be attending the Public Health Activistsâ Dance Party tonight (Tuesday, 11/6). Itâs from 7pm â midnight at The Brass Monkey in Adams Morgan (2317 18th St. NW); tickets are $20, and proceeds benefit the Occupational Health & Safety Section Scholarship Fund.

If you know of other blog posts about the meeting or other APHA-related events taking place outside the conference center, feel free to post the info in the comments.

Liz:

Thanks for the heads up. I stopped by the Dance Party and had a great time. I didn't know that Occupational Health and Safety was such a party group.

I hope to see you guys again next year.
