Talbot, APHA public health nursing leader.

Dorothy M. Talbot, PhD, an APHA member active in public health nursing, died in July at age 89.

Talbot's public health career included work on disaster preparedness through the American Red Cross and she was active in promoting both community health and public health.

Talbot began her career as a hospital nurse during World War II and then worked as a county public health nurse in Louisiana. That work spurred her to obtain a master's degree from Columbia University and to begin teaching public health nursing at Louisiana State University in New Orleans. She earned her PhD from Tulane University and became professor and director of the public health nursing section at Tulane's School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine.

Within APHA, Talbot served in many roles, including chair of the Public Health Nursing Section and a member of the Governing Council.
