City of brotherly love

APHA is headed back to good ol’ Philadelphia, city of brotherly love, home to a cracked copper bell and temptress of gooey cheesesteaks. With a theme of “Water and Public Health,” the 137th APHA Annual Meeting will take place Nov. 7–11 at Philly’s Pennsylvania Convention Center. Online registration for the Annual Meeting opens June 1, and those who register by Aug. 28 can save some major bucks.

And since you’re already reading this blog, why not sign up to receive regular updates in your e-mail? We’ll be in Philly with you posting daily entries during the Annual Meeting, covering everything from scientific sessions to public health celebrations to, hey, where’d you get that gelato?
