Thousands of public health professionals, researchers, and students gathered for the annual APHA meeting in Boston in early November, and MEZCOPH was there.
At the American Public Health Association’s (APHA) 2022 annual meeting, hosted this year in Boston, MEZCOPH students, staff, and faculty joined thousands of other public health professionals from around the country to exchange stories and strategies. Our MEZCOPH booth in the main expo hall engaged hundreds of visitors, and our alumni reception was packed with alumni and friends who were eager to reconnect.
In the lobby above the main convention floor, an exhibit of public health accomplishments, decade-by-decade since the 1800s, reminded participants of all we have achieved.
