Ushering in APIC's 40th Anniversary with a Name Change!

By Elena Ong, PHN, MS 

Dear APIC Colleagues,

I'm very pleased to announce that APIC has a new name!

In the 2014-2014 APIC election, APIC members supported changing APIC's name from the "Asian Pacific Islander Caucus for Public Health" to the "Asian & Pacific Islander Caucus for Public Health." Only 1 person voted to keep the name the same.

Why was there so much support?  (After all, it was near-unanimous!)

What's that "&" mean?
