Development Titles Desired At APHA Medical Conference

I just attended the four-day long APHA Conference, held October 29 - November 2, 2011 in Washington, DC. I met a variety of individuals of all ages and skills ranging from academic professors, physicians, students and dentists. Not only was the conference hall packed with these exceptional folks, but our medical titles were a huge success.

But, out of all of the people I had met, I was surprised to speak with a few development workers who wanted to learn about the advancement of medicine in different countries (mainly Third World). This turn-out was a pleasant surprise, as I never would have expected them to show up at a medical convention.

What surprised me even more was their interest in our own KP title, Anticorruption in the Health Sector. One medical professor I met, even said he used the book in his law class!

This conference was worthy of our time, not just for our own titles. It shows that our titles do not only appeal to one group of readers, but to workers in the field of International Development (for example), as well as in classes such as nursing, medicine, law and ethics.
