Dornsife Sessions and Events at APHA
From October 24-27, 2021, faculty, staff, and students from Dornsife presented their work at multiple sessions at the American Public Health Association’s (APHA) 2021 Annual Meeting and Expo in Denver, Colorado.
This year’s theme was "Creating the Healthiest Nation: Strengthening Social Connectedness." APHA 2021 had hybrid online/in-person schedule that allowed for more participation from the virtual audience, and networking time for both virtual and in-person attendees.
Many faculty, staff, and students had their work featured at the event. Mariana Chilton, PhD, a professor and director of the Center for Hunger-Free Communities at Dornsife, presented on essential factors for achieving lasting food and nutrition security. She discussed how the solution is not more charity food but abolition.
On Monday of APHA, Dornsife co-sponsored this year's APHA Day of Action: Public Health for Public Safety. Attendees virtually toured downtown Denver to observe and discuss the determinants and consequences of racism and public safety inequities in Denver, and heard from the community leaders and programs that are successfully working towards solutions.
Amy Carroll-Scott, PhD, MPH, an associate professor in the department of Community Health and Prevention at Dornsife, helped plan this day of action once again. Attendees tweeted and created buzz on Twitter. Carroll-Scott tweeted a framework of public health for public safety by Denver's Task Force to Reimagine Policing and Public Safety.
