How many ways can you keep up with the 2016 APHA Annual Meeting and Expo next week? Let’s count the ways.

Logo, APHA 2016 Annual Meeting and Expo, Denver, Oct. 29-Nov. 3First, there’s the APHA Annual Meeting Blog, right here on our new home at Public Health Newswire — the nation’s leading source of public health news. Just like in past years, APHA’s dedicated bloggers will be bringing you daily coverage of this year’s gathering in Denver, reporting on new findings from scientific sessions, posting photos from social events and award ceremonies, bringing you highlights from keynote speakers and so much more. Daily blog coverage begins on Saturday, Oct. 29, and runs through Wednesday, Nov. 2. Make it easy on yourself and subscribe to the APHA Annual Meeting Blog to receive daily emails with links to our most recent coverage.

Then there are two APHA Twitter feeds — @PublicHealth and @APHAAnnualMtg. We’ll be live-tweeting a number of this year’s Annual Meeting events, including the Opening General Session with keynote speaker Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, and the Monday General Session featuring Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Tom Frieden, former U.S. Surgeon General David Satcher and other former CDC leaders. You can follow all of our tweets from the Annual Meeting and join the Twitter conversation using the hashtag #APHA2016. Last year, we counted 25,000 tweets in just a handful of days using the 2015 APHA Annual Meeting hashtag — can you help us get to 50,000 this time around?
