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 http://www.apha.org/meetings/ .

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. http://www.sewellfund.org 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
http://depts.washington.edu/hswork/mla/stipend/mla-crc-call-2004.doc .
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!
