Personal Statement about APHA-SA: I have always been looking for avenues to become more involved within public health community. When I first heard about APHA-SA and group of students like myself working together to make a difference in the field of public health, I immediately became a member of this largest student led organization. My first involvement as an APHA-SA Campus Liaison for UConn Health Center greatly helped me to learn more about the organization and public health field as a whole. My interest to get involved in the APHA-SA grew even more after that experience. I am really excited to serve APHA-SA as a Website Committee Co-chair. In the future, I wish to actively involve with the APHA-SA and bring a positive impact with in the group.
