The annual APHA conference is always a lot of fun. It’s a chance to celebrate public health with colleagues across the nation and world. Last year’s conference in Atlanta also provided a bit of fun since Olympic Park is adjacent to the Georgia World Congress Center.

Since the 2018 APHA Meeting and Expo is in San Diego next week, I know many people will be taking advantage of the beautiful, sunny weather. However, make sure to stop by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s booth (numbers 630 and 632). Alumni, department representatives and faculty visit the booth throughout the conference. Taking a half hour or even five minutes to visit the booth can result in great networking and learning more about the many opportunities at the Bloomberg School.

The Admissions Services Office will also take part in the This is Public Health Fair on Wednesday, November 14 at San Diego State University School of Public Health from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Unfortunately, I failed in my campaign to help at APHA this year and create more photoshoot opportunities. Maybe in 2020 when APHA is in San Francisco I will!
