A Message from the President:
Welcome to our website, and thank you for your interest in the New York State Public Health Association! NYSPHA is a state affiliate of the American Public Health Association (APHA). We hope that if you are not yet a member of NYSPHA, you will consider joining the other 300+ active members of this exciting organization. Explore the possibility of joining both seasoned and up and coming public health professionals and advocates from across New York in statewide public health initiatives. We encourage members to become a part of our committees: Policy and Advocacy, Events Planning and Education, Communications and Membership, and Fund Development.
On July 1, 2018 we welcomed our new Board of Directors to our Board: Dr. Gus Birkhead and Dr. Brett Harris. Our team members at NYSPHA have very diverse backgrounds in public health from all parts of New York State, and so if you haven't had the chance I'll encourage you to take a brief moment to meet all of our officers, directors and staff.
Lastly, we are just back from sunny San Diego, CA for the 2018 APHA conference - click here to see a highlight of one of this year's award recipients, Dr. Irina Gelman, Commissioner of Health at Orange County Health Department in New York.
We look forward to collaborating and partnering with you on shared public health interests - please contact us at any time with any questions or suggestions you may have.
To your good health,
Susan M. Franko, PhD, RRT
