A Message from the President

Welcome 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). 

Public health is in the headlines right now as COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus, is sweeping across the world and our nation. You can access accurate, reliable and up-to-date information on the  New York State Department of Health's website.

Now more than ever is an important time to join NYSPHA and the growing community of public health professionals and students in New York State. 

We encourage you to take a brief moment to meet all of our officers, directors and staff and learn how you can be more active with NYSPHA by joining one of our committees.
