Personal Statement about APHA-SA: I became involved in APHA-SA through my desire to learn more about the APHA Publications Board as a student representative. I was interested in becoming more involved in public health outside my university and specific research area of interest. Public Health is such a broad field that it is important for all of us in the profession to remain connected with common goals and experiences despite widely varying concentration areas. Becoming more involved with APHA-SA is an excellent way to make connections with public health students all over the country, as well as to gain valuable professional experience through working with APHA boards as a student representative.
