A little birdie told me so: Tweet of the day

As is now tradition during APHA meetings, we'll be posting a Tweet of the Day from Twitterers using the official meeting hashtag, which this year is #APHAMid12. Today's Tweet of the Day comes from past APHA President Deborah Klein Walker, known as @DKWpublichealth, who tweeted in response to opening session speaker and North Carolina State Health Officer Laura Gerald:

NC Health Officer Gerald states prevention efforts funded by tobacco tax has been drastically cut #APHAmid12 @APHAAnnualMtg What next?

This blogger imagines similar sentiment can heard within the halls of budget-strapped health departments around the country. Let's just hope that what's next isn't an uptick in tobacco use.
