Welcome to the American Public Health Association Student Assembly! This website serves as a valuable communication tool to provide information about APHA-SA programs, initiatives, and membership benefits. Here, you will find information about our various committees and publications. Additionally, our website contains information about our Annual Meeting programming, including scientific sessions; our renowned Annual Meeting Supplement Annual Meeting ; as well as information about our Student Meeting , held annually the week of the APHA Annual Meeting. Our frequently updated Opportunities page contains professional and academic development resources for students, including job, internship, fellowship, funding, and conference opportunities to name a few.
In addition to programs and initiatives mentioned above, there are numerous ways to become involved in APHA-SA. We are constantly seeking motivated students to serve on our many committees , each of which has a page on this site describing their projects activities. Please check out our committee web pages and use the Contact Us section of the website to contact our committee chairs and express your interest in their projects. Each page provides a biographical sketch of our current chairs, describing their background, interests, and how they came to the ranks of leadership in APHA-SA. Additionally, from time to time we are recruiting new committee co-chairs and board members, representing an opportunity to be directly involved in a leadership role in APHA-SA. Please check back to our website for these opportunities as well.
The leadership of APHA-SA is excited for the year to come, culminating with the 136th Annual Meeting of the American Public Health Association in San Diego, CA. in October 2008. Throughout the year, APHA-SA leaders will be working to improve existing programs, creating exciting new programs, and enhancing the benefits of becoming an APHA-SA member. I encourage you to peruse the pages of this site for more information and contact our board members if you would like to become involved in APHA-SA, or with any questions or feedback.
