The CPH Foundation is talking with the Congressional Study Group on Public Health and several partner organizations as we organize a Hepatitis-C briefing on Capitol Hill. Speakers will discuss the topic from 9 to 10:00 am on December 11, 2013. We will post more details in an upcoming newsletter, so stay tuned.
UNSUNG HEROES OF PUBLIC HEALTH
Thanks to a generous grant from AbbVie, we will hold our fourth-annual Unsung Heroes of Public Health awards ceremony again this year. The government shutdown forced some adjustment to our calendar, and the new date for the awards reception will be January 8, 2014. We are excited the event will be hosted on Capitol Hill by the Congressional Study Group on Public health, and take place in the Gold Room of the Rayburn House office Building from 4 to 6 pm.
FUTURE PUBLIC HEALTH TOURS
The CPH Foundation has led a dozen successful tours of public health and prevention institutions for members of Congress, their staff, members of the media, and prominent business leaders. Our last tour, held November 8 2013, led a bipartisan group of congressional leaders to Atlanta with the critical support of NASTAD, APHA, IDSA, Research!America and NACCHO.
We hope to visit public health “hot spots” like the US-Mexico border with members later in 2014 and have several other trips we hope to launching as well. Partner input and support is critical to making these trips happen. If your nonprofit organization would be interested in helping us execute one of these tours, please fill out our related Google Survey. We also invite you to call us to learn more.
