Make a difference in the challenge to confront global warming and prevent nuclear war and the development and use of nuclear weapons.
Let's tell the candidates that we’re worried about climate change, and we want to know what they are going to do about it.
APHA 2011 Commences!
October 31, 2011
Yesterday was my first day at the 2011 American Public
Health Association (APHA) Conference. This conference hosts over 12,000 public
health professionals and is always a bit overwhelming at first. After I picked
up my materials, I joined April Avant and Mary Kerwin to set-up our table at
the APHA Exposition. The hall is massive. There are hundreds of groups tabling
at APHA and range from Universities, the National Institute for Health,
companies selling medical equipment, to a lone advocacy group called PSR at
booth #6096. It's always interesting to see who the neighbors are. Last year,
we were next to the LGBT APHA Caucus table who were fun and helped cover our
table when I left to forage for food. This year, our neighbors are mostly
Universities which is great because we get to talk to more students than
The first day at the conference went without any serious
disasters. PSR's reputation is still intact and, the chocolates that Molly
Rauch had us order for our booth, are a big hit with APHA attendees. They also
provide me with a constant test of willpower which... builds character.
I am looking forward to another day at APHA 2011!
