Join me for APHA 2017 Annual Meeting & Expo in Atlanta where we will be presenting our scientific research. APHA’s Annual Meeting serves as the home for public health professionals to convene, learn, network and engage with peers. More than 1,000 cutting-edge scientific sessions will be presented. The meeting also includes an exhibit hall with more than 600 booths of products, services and information, as well as countless networking opportunities. As lead author, I am proud to announce that our abstracts have been accepted for presentation as part of two scientific sessions!
