Science Board

All 16 Science Board members represent one of five core areas of public health: behavioral and social sciences, biomedical sciences and clinical practice, environmental and occupational health, epidemiology and statistics, and health management and social policy. The board participates in the Association policy development process by ensuring that all APHA policy statements are evidence-based. Nominations are being solicited for members with scientific expertise in any one of these five core areas. The Science Board meets during the spring and during the Annual Meeting. The term for members of the Science Board is three years.
