I am forwarding the following announcement for a co-worker  who does not subscribe to the list.  Please respond directly to her, at  [log in to unmask] 
since I will be out of the office through  the next week.

Are you currently serving public health workers/researchers/faculty/students?

Want to know more about their world/information needs?

Interested in networking with them or with other librarians serving them?

Wishing for one-stop shopping for a public health collection?

Then consider attending the American Public Health Association's annual meeting in Washington, D.C. this November 6-10 .

And consider applying for a stipend to reimburse a portion of your membership, registration, travel and other per diem expenses.  

The Grace and Harold Sewell Memorial Fund, Inc. will offer stipends to librarians and other information professionals to defray expenses involved in their attending and/or participating in the 2004 APHA annual meeting. The Fund has reimbursed public health-serving librarians for 5 years as part of its commitment to improving librarians' understanding of these medical and health care professionals.  

Successful local (greater Washington D.C.) applicants will receive a stipend of $475. Successful applicants from outside greater DC will receive $850.Though significant, these amounts will NOT cover all costs so attendees will need to find additional monies to cover remaining costs. 

Download the Word application form at .
Completed applications must be sent as an email attachment to Nancy Schaefer by July 26, 2004.

For more information, contact Nancy Schaefer at [log in to unmask] .

Please forward this message to others who may be interested.

See you at APHA!
