APHA 2022 Highlights

The 2022 APHA Annual Meeting and Expo in Boston celebrated the 150 year anniversary of APHA and the achievements in public health policy and science that APHA and its members have facilitated. This year had over 12,000 people in attendance and came with some huge wins for the Maryland Public Health Association!
