Welcome to the Florida Public Health Association website!   

Special Online Silent Bid Opportunity-Today (Friday, December 19th) is the last day to bid...


FPHA Members,

We have a great opportunity for you on a wonderful event.  Each year a Silent Auction is held at the FPHA Annual Meeting.  The funds raised are all used for public health student scholarships.  One really good donation arrived after the meeting and we want to let everyone have the opportunity to bid on it.  All you need to do is send your bid to the the FPHA office and the highest bid will be posted on the FPHA.org website each day.  The auction will start tomorrow, December 12, 2015, and end next Friday, December 19, 2014 at 7 PM EST.  Which will give us time to get it to you the following week.  Payment can be made by credit card or check.


Send your bid on either:

Dolphin Swim Certificate #1  -  $100

Dolphin Swim Certificate #2  -  $100


The items are two separate gift certificates to the Miami Seaquarium Dolphin Harbor for a “Swim With Our Dolphins” experience.  Each certificate is good until August 1, 2015.  The certificate entitles one person to participate in the Dolphin Odyssey experience for an exciting one and a half hour program that will offer an insightful look into dolphin behavior and beauty. Before you put on one of their wetsuits and enter the water for an up-close encounter, the trainers will tell you exciting facts about these extraordinary animals.  For the safety of all there are a few requirements.


All participants must be at least 52” tall.

A parent or guardian must accompany those under 18.  (additional fees may apply)

All participants must wear a swimsuit.

Underwater cameras are prohibited.

No smoking.

All jewelry and sunglasses must be removed before entering the water.

Expectant mothers are not permitted to participate.

All persons taking part in this program are required to sign a liability release from prior to beginning the program.

If you are in the Miami area or willing to go there, we hope you will take chance and put in your bid!
