We invite you to join us for an upcoming 90-minute webinar:

Stepping Up to Make a Difference: The Vital Role of Anchor Institutions in Community Health Improvement
January 27, 2016 3:00 p.m. EST

From hospitals and health systems to universities, ‘anchor institutions’ are organizations with deep roots and longevity as major employers in their communities. By adopting strategies that include local purchasing, job training, community investment, anchor institutions are contributing to efforts that create equitable opportunity and better meet broader community needs. Leaders and partners from anchor institutions will describe why they have taken this approach and how it benefits their organizations and the communities they serve and improves population health.

Shannon Hughes, FPHA President 2015-2016

President's Corner

Greetings esteemed public health professionals!

Thank you for visiting the FPHA web page.  We are proud of the work underway to refresh and reinvigorate our efforts to educate and inform public health professionals in Florida.  Work is underway for the FPHA annual education conference (scheduled for July in Orlando), a regional south Florida one-day conference, and a variety of other activities all designed to bring public health folks together for learning, networking and motivating!  Get involved! We need you – and we welcome all public health professionals to join our work – the more energy and enthusiasm, the better!  Our membership fees are very reasonable and we hope to see all members re-join and bring a colleague or two into the mix.

Our annual education conference is shaping up to be an exciting time – and is always a fun learning experience – so put it on your calendar now.  Members are encouraged to identify items that can be donated and listed on our silent auction at the conference – the funds raised go to scholarships for public health students. 

In the words of Edith Wharton, “There are two ways of spreading light:  to be the candle or the mirror that reflects its light.” 

Best Regards –
Shannon Hughes 

FPHA President
