The panel would be organized around the theme of American children's health. My paper will be on American children's health and conformity during the early Cold War. Please, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 14, 2016. The call for panels closes on September 28, 2016. I look forward to discussing American children's health with you.

Call for Abstracts
I've put what I hope are some good starting points for information on progressive-era reforms, esp. with regard to public health. Some of these are older texts (there would be a lot more to offer if you're looking for historiographical debates), but these should serve nicely as introductions:
- Daniel T. Rodgers, Atlantic Crossings
- Michael McGerr, A Fierce Discontent
- ides about health: sections of James Whorton, Crusaders for Fitness and John Duffy, The Sanitarians, and Lears, No Place of Grace
