I painstaking typed out a post on my iPad the last day of APHA. And as I was saving it the app crashed. I was irritated to say the least. Too irritated to retype it and between the flight home and catching up on laundry and work, I no longer remember what I had even written.

APHA was crazy! Tons of people and tons of exhibits and tons of sessions. I'm planning to watch the keynote speeches I missed on the APHAs youtube soon as I finish my focus group paper. I definitely heard some interesting speakers and some not-so-interesting speakers. Went to a really great session on social marketing and mass media.

Here are a few pictures from the trip...

First up is all the CBH students in attendance, with the lovely Dr. Parker.

And the Library of Congress. I squealed inside when I got my reader ID and was able to go in the reading room.
