The Sewell Travel Award for Public Health (STAPH) Committee invites applications for 2019 Sewell Stipends to attend the American Public Health Association (APHA) Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, November 2-6, 2019. This year’s theme is Creating the Healthiest Nation: For science. For equity. For action. For health. Visit the APHA Annual Meeting Website for more information about the conference. The application deadline is Tuesday, July 16, at 11:00 PM CDT.
Funding is anticipated to support approximately eight non-local librarians (traveling significant distances) and two librarians local to the conference area. The award will provide reimbursement for the cost of APHA membership and early-bird conference registration. Non-local librarians receive additional funds to help offset the cost associated with travel. Applications are welcome from all librarians who work with public health practitioners, students, staff, and faculty. Early-career librarians and librarians who are not members of the MLA Public Health/Health Administration section are welcome to apply. For questions, contact Kate Nyhan.
