Welcome to another great year with AAPHP! I am delighted to be serving as the President this year, guided by our committed Board of faculty and students from across the United States. In 2022 we expanded our Board to enhance the opportunities for students to engage with us, and we are excited about the fresh ideas we have received that will continue to enhance the value of membership in AAPHP.
We have another full schedule of activities planned for 2023 that will benefit member institutions and their students. Our goal with webinars is to provide informative guidance and showcase best practices that can be incorporated into your own work on CEPH accreditation processes. With new training opportunities we will be launching this year, we are seeking to help our member programs meet workforce development requirements using both virtual and face-to-face formats. Our first offering in this area will be in area of a free training on GIS tools in Summer 2023.
We appreciate your participation and interest in AAPHP, and look forward to meeting with our members in person this year at the APHA conference in Atlanta in November 2023 - mark your calendars!
Melanie Sutton, 2023 AAPHP Board President
