    The Center for Sustainable Ag invites you to take part in a panel discussion on Racial Justice in the Vermont Food System from 4-6pm on Tuesday, September 29. 

    The Center is supporting the Susu Healing Collective in leading and facilitating this online conversation between farm and food system colleagues of color who live and work in Vermont. 

    Many of Vermont’s food system organizations--from farmland access to food access--would like to address racial justice in the food system, but some are just getting into this space for the first time. There has not yet been a statewide discussion on how to move Vermont towards a racially just food system. Please join facilitators Naomi Doe Moody and Amber Skye Arnold of the Susu Healing Collective and a panel of People of Color who are part of Vermont’s farm and food system to hear about needed work to address racial inequities and injustice - and work towards a just and thriving system for all.

    This virtual webinar is presented by the Susu Healing Collective with support from the UVM Extension Center for Sustainable Agriculture. Contact 
    susuheals@gmail.com or cheryl.herrick@uvm.edu for more information.  The webinar will have live captioning; if you require a disability-related accommodation in order to participate, please contact cheryl.herrick@uvm.edu so we may assist you.

    The Virtual Event is New, Not Less

    APHA 2020 will be our first-ever Virtual Annual Meeting and Expo, so we're working hard to make it into an unforgettable experience. The meeting will be equal parts educational, engaging and fun. As always, we’ll give you inspiration, tools and skills to make a difference in your community and advocate for evidence-based programs.

    Attendees can choose from 700+ live scientific sessions to watch during the meeting and continue to watch recordings on-demand after the meeting.

    We know networking is a top reason why public health professionals choose our meeting. We're scheduling unique activities and creating spaces to bring people together, so you can catch up with old friends, make new ones, chat with presenters about their research and build your network with leaders in the field and exhibiting companies.

    More to look forward to:

    • Hear from influential leaders from across the country. Speaker announcements coming soon!
    • Be a part of the conversation about COVID-19 and "Creating the Healthiest Nation: Preventing Violence."
    • Earn free CE credits: Choose from hundreds of CE accredited sessions to maintain your licensure! The first CE discipline is on us ($60 value).
    • Gain a fresh perspective on physical and mental wellness. Participate in fun workouts like yoga and dance, guided meditation sessions and engaging discussions.
    • Attend social events like the APHA Dance Party, Sunset Tweetup, Awards Ceremony and more.
    It's more important now than ever to come together and share stories, challenges and research. By going all-virtual, this year's Virtual Annual Meeting and Expo will prove that public health breaks barriers and continues to find solutions to problems at every level. We hope you will join us and share the news with your colleagues!
