Personal Statement about APHA-SA: APHA-SA is a great way to become involved in Public Health on a national level. I was particularly interested in working with the Campus Liaison Subcommittee. This committee is essential to the growth and sustainability of APHA-SA. Furthermore, it is a committee that allows me to interact and communicate with various students around the world, but particularly those that are interested in serving as a student leader, a Campus Liaison, on their campus.
