Are you at the American Public Health Association‘s 137th Annual Meeting, currently taking place November 7-11, 2009, in Philadelphia, PA? Well, I’ll tell you who is there: Carol McLaughlin, MD, MPH, our global health director, and Kathleen Noonan, JD, director of PolicyLab and a senior fellow of CHIP.
Carol had the opportunity to present, Prenatal HIV testing by undocumented immigrant women in Philadelphia’s Public Health Centers, at last year’s meeting. This year, Kathleen had the opportunity to present, the Importance of policy relevant research, on Sunday.
This year’s conference topic is “Water and Public Health.” If you’d like to peruse the schedule of events, here is today’s and tomorrow’s schedule.
