Five PHHS students will attend the American Public Health Association (APHA) annual meeting in Boston this month. These five students were selected from a large pool of applicants from the PHHS student body for their excellent academic performance and demonstrated interest in attending the APHA conference:

Amber Currie, MPH student, with a concentration in Health Education
Raya Fares, MS in Health Education student
Georgiana Logan, MS in Health Education student
Hannah Murdoch, BS in Health Care Administration student
Kimberly Whitlock, MS in Health Education student

PHHS has provided funding for each student to receive APHA student membership for one year, APHA conference registration, travel expenses, and meals for the trip.

This is an excellent learning and networking opportunity for these students. The APHA Annual Meeting, according to the organization’s Web site, “attracts more than 13,000 national and international physicians, administrators, nurses, educators, researchers, epidemiologists, and related health specialists. APHA’s meeting program addresses current and emerging health science, policy, and practice issues in an effort to prevent disease and promote health.”
