Thank You

Many thanks to everyone who volunteered to staff our booth at the Annual Conference in DC-among them: Susan Fulmer, Sara Head, Diwakar Tejaswi, Doug Turley, Tim Sankary, Brenda Woods-Francis, and Bonnie Chakravorty. My apologies to anyone I might have missed.



Also- Sara Head was the winner of the $25 Amazon Gift Certificate lottery open to all booth volunteers.


We hope to see YOU volunteering at our booth in San Diego!

What are the deadlines for submission?


The APHA website now has additional information on its website about Forums in general and the Genomics Forum specifically:


I look forward to hearing from you, and thanks for any assistance you may provide.
