Sunday’s Have You Heard...

Welcome back!: Kick off your APHA Annual Meeting experience by attending the Opening General Session from noon to 2 p.m. in the San Diego Convention Center’s Exhibit Hall D. Hear from APHA Executive Director Georges Benjamin as well as keynote speaker Michael Marmot, chair of the World Health Organization’s Commission on Social Determinants of Health. And if you seriously high-tail it to the PubMart exhibit at the Public Health Expo after the opening session you can catch a book signing with Marmot from 2:30 to 3 p.m.

Believe us, we know how you’re feeling: Overwhelmed as you flip through the hundreds of pages of the Annual Meeting program? Don’t fret, just stop by the APHA Member Orientation to the Annual Meeting, session 259, from 3:30–5 p.m. in Meeting Room 10 of the San Diego Convention Center and get all the basics you need for a fulfilling — and fun — meeting.

Hallelujah!: Like George Michael once sang: You’ve got to have faith. So take a bit of a break from your business meetings and note-taking to stop by the 10-year anniversary celebration of APHA’s Caucus on Public Health and the Faith Community today from 4 to 6 p.m. in Meeting Room 1B of the convention center.

I see public health workers: Visit the vision screening van, provided by the Vision & Eye Health Work Group, at the Public Health Expo, booth 2243, today through Wednesday.
