Personal Statement about APHA-SA:
As an undergraduate student interested in public health, the APHA and APHA-SA seemed to be just the right connection I needed to learn more about public health. Public health is all around us and yet people often do not understand public health. I am excited about this opportunity to help others learn more about public health in action and connect them to the many resources and talented people of this organization. We are all working to create a better future for everyone.
