Personal Statement about APHA-SA:
I first became involved in APHA-SA by joining the Programming Committee. I learned very quickly that all the members of APHA-SA are very passionate about increasing awareness of public health issues among their peers. This motivated me to become more involved within this organization and to help others learn from me. I feel like I have a very unique opportunity to be a part of such a dynamic group of students. It is my hope as the Programming Co-Chair to be able to provide leadership and motivation to other members. By doing this I want students to realize how important their role is in the Public Health field and how big of a difference they can make.
