Will you be in Philadelphia next wee? We’ll be there for the annual American Public Health Association’s (APHA) Meeting and Expo and This is Public Health Graduate School Fair.

This year APHA is considered almost local to the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health as it’s only an hour away via Amtrak in Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The Bloomberg School will be at the expo and available to answer any questions you might have about programs, degrees, the school itself, and how to apply. This year our booth numbers are 138 and 140.

If you aren’t registered for APHA, but are in the Philadelphia area and want to meet us or learn more about public health, APHA is offering two wonderful opportunities. The first is the APHA Student Visit Day. For $40, high school, college, and graduate students can attend the first day of APHA (Sunday, November 3) with a student ID. Students will have access to the expo hall as well as all the sessions. The last day to register is this Saturday, November 2.

The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future will also be attending. If you are interested in environmental health, issues regarding sustainable living and practices, this center is a wonderful opportunity for students. They will be at booth number 535. Also attending the expo will be the Child and Adolescent Health Measurement Initiative. This program focuses on family engagement tools, public policy, and promoting flourishing and resilience. Learn more during APHA and stop by their booth, which is located at number 427.

Following APHA, the School will be attending the Association of Schools and Programs in Public Health’s This is Public Health Graduate School Fair on Wednesday, November 6 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. This fair is intended for all prospective public health graduate students and is free. Admissions Services recommend registering online prior to arrival.

Whether at the expo or at the This is Public Health Graduate School Fair, we hope to see you all in Philadelphia!
