Donate to the Toby Citrin Memorial Fund for Youth Researchers

Toby Citrin, JD, honored at the 2020 APHA Annual Meeting, played a key role in starting the American Public Health Association's Community-Based Public Health Caucus. In honor of Toby Citrin, quintessential mentor and leader in this effort, we are establishing the Toby Citrin Memorial Fund for Youth Researchers.

Through this fund, we will collect resources to support the attendance and participation of youth researchers in future APHA conferences. It can take up to $1300 for one youth researcher to register for, travel to, stay for, and attend/present at an APHA conference.

Please consider donating to the fund through our GoFundMe Site!
