The AAPHP Public Health Policy Forum section of the Annual Meeting will be serve as an initial step in the development of future AAPHP policies and resolutions.
Members interested in presenting specific public health policies for AAPHP consideration (in person or by telephone) should contact firstname.lastname@example.org since as of 2/4/2013 the agenda for the meeting is almost full.
Initial comments will be limited to 5 minutes and will be followed by an opportunity for concise response by other attendees. Presenters should be prepared to work with an AAPHP committee to continue the discussion and develop policies, resolutions and web pages.
No visual electronic media will be available for this unique discussion in the tradition of ancient Greek philosophers. (Handout submitted in advance are allowed). It is hoped that this discourse will lay the foundation for future policies which continue to promote the Public's Health.
The Forum is part of the Annual meeting which will be available by phone at Dial-in Number :1-712-432-3066 conference code 280904 or in person at POINTE HILTON TAPATIO CLIFFS RESORT 11111 North 7th StreetPhoenix, Arizona 85020 http://www.tapatiocliffshilton.com/.
Policy Development is one of the three core functions of public health. Effective public health policies are based upon epidemiology, ethics, economics and public health law. Links to basic material on these topics is available at http://www.aaphp.org/basics.
