In 2008 Health Administration celebrated 100 years of Excellence as a section.

For over a Century, the section has served our members and supported their efforts to improve the public’s health by improving and advancing the field of health administration. Founded in 1908, the original title of our section was the Municipal Health Officers section. By 1912, the section became known as the Public Health Officers section, and finally became known as the Health Administration Section in 1916. Over this long history, our section has served the needs of APHA members involved in health administration, particularly in local health departments.

Today, our membership reflects the field of public health. Anyone working to improve the public’s health and engaged in administration and leadership activities finds Health Administration to be a tremendous place to learn, network and share ideas.
