Jennifer Waskovich, FPHA President 2017-2018

President's Corner
Welcome to FPHA.ORG, the website for Florida public health professionals.  Our organization is comprised of individuals dedicated to the advancement of public health professionals in Florida.  If you want to learn more or are interested in becoming more involved in FPHA, please take a look at our About FPHA section.  Here you can read about our Mission and Vision along with find a list of our Board members.  I encourage you to join our State association and help us build a strong public health workforce to improve the health of our communities.

Election Results
Elections for our 2017-2018 Board members closed on August 31, 2017.  We had 160 members vote and I want to say thank you to all who voted.  Our newly elected Board members are: ·         Ethel Edwards – 1st Vice President
·         Jessica Weissman – 2nd Vice President
·         Chintan Bhatt - Secretary
·         Beth Paterniti – Member at Large
·         Ernesto “Tito” Rubio – Southern Health Association Representative (SHA)

Ethel has been on our Board for a number of years and most recently was acting as our 2nd Vice President and she is currently our Membership Committee Chair.  Jessica has been a very active student member since joining FPHA a couple years ago and has acted as our Secretary for the past two years.  Ethel and Jessica have been dedicated FPHA members and I am confident that will continue in their new roles.  Public Health is a passion of theirs and that shows through their advocacy and promotion of FPHA.  

I want to take some extra time to welcome our new Board members and share a little about them here.
