This is a special request from a fellow health blogger. I pass this information along so that others can participate in the meeting in person or virtually.
“Greetings fellow health blogger!
Let me introduce myself: My name is Kim Krisberg and I write for the American Public Health Association’s Annual Meeting Blog, http://aphaannualmeeting.blogspot.com, which is now entering its fourth year blogging from the world’s largest gathering of public health professionals.
This year, I and my fellow APHA bloggers will be reporting from Denver from Nov. 5-10, where thousands of public health experts, workers, teachers, advocates and students will be soaking up the latest research, networking with colleagues, listening to the nation’s top public health leaders, sharing their own public health success stories and joining a growing movement to create healthier communities.
Luckily, the APHA Annual Meeting Blog will be there to cover it all. With hundreds of scientific sessions to choose from, the blog will be reporting the most exciting, cutting-edge issues from across the vast public health spectrum — and we’re hoping you’ll come along for the ride.
In fact, as a fellow health blogger, we hope you’ll not only tune into the APHA Annual Meeting Blog during the five-day meeting, we’re asking you to help us spread the word to your readers as well. We hope you’ll consider linking to our postings or even repurposing our content for publication on your own blog. This is an exciting and important time for public health, and APHA wants to reach as many people as possible with the latest news, data and opportunities.
Besides the blog, APHA and meeting attendees will also be tweeting from Denver. Check out both of APHA’s Twitters, at www.twitter.com/publichealth and www.twitter.com/APHAAnnualMtg, and look for the hashtag #apha10 for the latest updates from Denver.
Also, look for the hashtag #aphasummit for news from APHA’s Summit on Health Reform, which takes place in Denver on Saturday, Nov. 6, and will feature more than a dozen speakers from local, state and federal public health agencies and nonprofits.
