Annual Meeting blog kicks off

Welcome to the American Public Health Association’s 135th Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., and the first Annual Meeting daily blog.

From Nov. 3 through Nov. 7, writers with APHA’s Communications Department will be posting a few entries each day, covering a variety of Annual Meeting scientific sessions and events. We’re hoping that amid the hustle and bustle of the meeting, this daily blog will give you a chance to read about a session you missed, continue a debate that just got started or simply reflect on the day’s hot public health topics. If you don’t have time to check out the blog while you’re at the meeting, no worries — the blog will still be accessible long after the meeting is over.

Comments on this blog are encouraged and welcomed. However, because all comments will be screened before publication, there may be a delay before a comment is posted. Comments that include profanity, personal attacks, spam, inappropriate or inflammatory text or are irrelevant to the topic discussion will not be posted. APHA reserves the right to block users who violate these posting standards and/or remove their comments.

If you’d like to be notified when new blog entries are posted, sign up below to receive e-mail alerts or subscribe to the blog’s RSS feed. If you have any questions or comments, e-mail us.

APHA is the oldest and most diverse organization of public health professionals in the world, dedicated to protecting all Americans and their communities from preventable, serious health threats and assuring community-based health promotion and disease prevention activities and preventive health services are universally accessible in the United States.

This is cool. How will I be able to access the blog from the Annual Meeting? Will there be somewhere on site?


Thanks for your comment tulane621. One place you can access the blog with your personal laptop is at the Mix and Mingle Lounge in the Washington Convention Center, where attendees can take advantage of free wireless Internet connections. The i-Communicate computer center is also in the lounge.
