See you online at APHA!

Staff presentations & an award

This year’s online version of the American Public Health Association meeting (October 24-28) has the potential to reach more people than ever before, and the current year has highlighted many public health challenges, such as COVID-19 and structural racism, that require us to share knowledge. We are pleased that many of our staff members will be adding their expertise to the presentations, and we invite you to review the schedule below and join them.

In addition, we are proud to share that senior attorney Derek Carr is this year’s recipient of APHA’s Early Career Award for Excellence in Public Health Law, which is presented to an individual who demonstrates great promise as a future leader in public health law. If you have ever worked with Derek, you know what a great strategic partner he is. Congratulations, Derek!

You can also connect with us at Booth #418 of the Virtual Expo And as always, feel free to reach out to us with your questions and ideas.
