Medical Care Section workgroups help keep our section running smoothly, and our committees plan scientific, business and social sessions for APHA’s Annual Meeting and Exposition, while some develop policy proposals for APHA. Our workgroups and committees are superb venues for networking with peers, deepening familiarity with issues and working with other health professionals who are committed to improving the nation’s health.
