Personal Statement about APHA-SA:
As a visiting student at Emory Rollins School of Public Health during the fall of 2005, I first heard about the American Public Health Association - Student Assembly from the current Chair-elect Darren Mays. Darren's enthusiasm for the APHA-SA and for public health activism was very inspiring, and I eventually wanted to bring the same enthusiasm and activism to the Tulane School of Public Health. Here in New Orleans there is a need for Public Health activism. Also, I am very proud to work with an incredible group of individuals who share the same goal of promoting public health.
