There are 29 primary Sections that represent major public health disciplines or public health programs. These sections allow members with shared interests to come together to develop scientific program content, policy papers in their areas of interest or fields of practice, provide for professional and social networking, career development and mentoring.

Sections serve as the primary professional units of the Association and conduct activities that promote the mission and fulfill the goals of APHA. Sections create a variety of opportunities for member involvement, thus making the APHA experience richer for individuals who have the opportunity to attend and choose to interact with their primary Sections.

To be an active Section member, an individual must have a current membership in APHA. Anyone who is a member of APHA may become a member of a Section.

For more information on APHA Sections, contact Nathan Bhatti or Caitlin Sarlo.
