Check out APHA’s new videos!  They have posted short clips on some great topics such as advancing your career, using APHA to bolster your professional network, getting the most out of the Annual Meeting, earning CE credits and navigating APHA.org. They also feature a recording of the Sept. 6 live APHA Town Hall with Executive Director Georges Benjamin and Associate Executive Director Susan Polan, who offer a look inside APHA. Check them out!

APHA Annual Meeting – Who’s Going?
Hey, NHPHA Members! Who’s going to the APHA Annual Meeting in Denver this year? Are you presenting a poster, on a panel, and/or attending? Please email me at Shasta.jorgensen@gmail.com and let me know if you are going. I will plan an informal night for NHPHA members to get together, have dinner and share stories from the conference.
