Monday’s Have You Heard...

The other election: Stop by a “Meet the Candidates” forum sponsored by APHA’s Committee on Affiliates and Intersectional Council and get to know the candidates running for the association’s Executive Board as well as for APHA president. The first-ever jointly sponsored event runs from 7 to 9:10 a.m. in the Marriott Manchester I.

Give a little, get a cookie: The San Diego Blood Bank is holding a blood drive in front of the San Diego Convention Center’s Hall C from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The blood drive will continue on Tuesday, also from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Where’s Willard Scott when you need him: Wish APHA’s Health Administration and Statistics Sections a Happy 100th Anniversary at their celebration booths at the Public Health Expo!

Our town: In just a little more than a week, it’ll be time to go to the polls. And so what better time to discuss the future of health care and public health’s role in bringing health care to all than right now. Stop by a Town Hall Meeting on Health System Reform today from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in Meeting Room 6 D/E of the convention center and have your voice heard. Moderated by health reporter Susan Brink from the Los Angeles Times, the panel will also feature CDC Director Julie Gerberding, Quentin Young of Physicians for a National Health Care Program, and a representative from Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, among others. (Full disclosure: A representative from John McCain’s campaign was invited as well.)
