Spirit of 1848 sessions at the APHA Annual Meeting

You may remember Nancy Krieger’s work from last semester.  The wonderful Spirit of 1848 group, a collection of activist health professionals and social scientists that she chairs, has a host of great-looking sessions at the APHA conference this weekend in San Francisco (that’s the American Public Health Association).

Two panels that look particularly interesting:
