We would like to start by acknowledging all veterans – and those currently serving – today and wish you a happy Veterans Day. Thank you for your service.
It was inspiring and heartwarming to see the over 12,000 attendees – all public health warriors – in person at this year’s American Public Health Association’s (APHA) Annual Meeting and Expo this week.
And while APHA was held during the midterms this year, many attendees voted for public health via early and absentee voting. We are analyzing the election results and what they may mean for academic public health. Members can look for our election analysis in Monday’s Advocacy Newsletter.
Thank you to our deans, program directors, faculty, students, and staff who attended, presented, exhibited and exchanged knowledge with our peers during APHA. From sessions covering global health, gun violence, climate change, anti-racism, recruitment, and admissions, to assembly and business meetings, poster sessions, and sponsoring APHA’s Academic and Practice Linkages in Public Health (APLPH) Caucus, ASPPH proudly represented the vital work of academic public health that we have all dedicated our careers to.
