Monday's Have You Heard

One flu over the cuckoo’s nest: This blogger has been washing her hands like crazy to avoid the flu, and even though my soft skin is suffering, my health is not. So if you’re like me and looking to go flu-free, stop by APHA’s Get Ready booth, #511 at the Public Health Expo, which is being presented in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and offers an extravaganza of free flu materials and information...and free hand sanitizer!

Ready for the next decade?: Already accomplished all the Healthy People 2010 goals in your community? Well, you’re in luck because Healthy People 2020 is just around the corner. To learn more, attend session 3010, “Healthy People 2020: Setting the Health Agenda For the Next Decade,” from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. in Marriott Independence 3.

Action!: Hey you movie buffs! Did ya know the APHA Annual Meeting features its very own film festival? Well, it does and it’s pretty darn cool. Check your programs for a number of film sessions, which you can find by looking for the listing “Film & Technology Session.”

Butt out: Ever wonder if all those nasty cigarette butts we see all over our streets and sidewalks aren’t only ugly, but bad for our health and environment? Find out at session 3191, “Banning Butts: The Environmental Case for Eliminating Tobacco Waste,” from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. in Marriott Grand Ballroom Salon B.
