3415.0 Destination 2011 - Plan our 140th Anniversary: The APHA History Update Project

Monday, October 31, 2011: 4:30 PM
Since our inception in 1872, The Associations continues to be the major organization that spans the wide range of public health professionals, educators, advocates, and researchers. Our history matters - we can shape our future-but it has been over one third of our Association’s second century, with no overall organized documentation of our history since the Association history was published in 1972. The operative theme of the Project is “We own our history and we will create our future”. Our history is the legacy that provides the portal to this future. A Panel followed by open discussion will show how members and membership groups can be involved in contributing to the project on an ongoing basis. A major objective is the demonstration website that will facilitate the collaboration, collection and presentation of our history as seen from the multiple and complementary views of the diversity of public health. Help us plan for the 140th Anniversary in 2011. This will be a working session.
Session Objectives: To discuss the enduring value of APHA and the need to capture our past and current events. To demonstrate the variety of sources and materials available, and how the steps proposed to gather and collate and disseminate the updated history project. To describe How members can become engaged and contribute to the project The collateral uses of the project in teaching, educating, and advocating on behalf of the Association’s mission and membership.
