Panel Proposal for the 5-8 January 2023 AHA Annual Conference

George Dehner's picture

I am interested in proposing a panel for the 136th Annual Meeting of the AHA 5-8 January 2023.  The panel will examine public reactions to disease outbreaks and the organizations that address them.  My paper will examine public and media responses to the 1976 Legionnaires’ Disease outbreak.  I am looking for three additional papers connected to the panel’s theme.  Deadline for proposals is February 15.  Please feel free to contact me off-list ( for comments, questions, or clarifications.
