I am now home from our four days in the Windy City. We were there for the American Public Health Association's annual conference, and it was absolutely amazing. Between my boss, Corrine, and I, we managed to present our study findings in five different presentations over the four days. FIVE. Guys, that's a LOT of presentations for two people. One of these I took the lead on, which resulted in my very first oral presentation at a national conference. Oh how far I have come with that pesky fear of public speaking!
Last night I got home right around midnight. I hugged Nick and covered Henry in kisses while he slept. I was exhausted and ready to be home, but I was also rejuvenated in my passion for public health, which, is really the point.
