Open Letter to APHA, re: Leana Wen

Dick Powis

Dear Colleagues in the Health Sciences,


You may remember a few months ago, there was an open letter circulating about AAA’s choice for keynote speaker, Chris Murray, and the demand to rescind his invitation.

There is now a similar letter circulating calling for the American Public Health Association to rescind their invitation to Leana Wen. You can read that letter here and you may sign it through this Google Form if you wish. The authors will be submitting the letter to APHA on Monday morning.


Thank you!
