Richard Trevino, MPH , APHA Caucus Collaborative, Boston, MA
There are currently 18 Caucuses affiliated within the American Public Health Association (APHA). The Caucuses allow members to coalesce around two major themes: 1) shared characteristics that cannot be changed (i.e. ethnicity/race, gender, sexual orientation) or 2) special interest, worksite issues, and social justice issues. This presentation will enlighten participants on the many facets of the Caucuses, past and present collaborations achieved and possible future goals needed to increase collaboration and visibility across all Member Groups within APHA (Sections, SPIGs, & Affiliates) and with other organizations.

List how many Caucuses are affiliated with APHA and their specialty/focus. Describe the basic mission & function of APHA Caucuses. Discuss ways in which APHA Caucuses collaborate both within APHA and outside organizations.
