APHA Annual Report highlights Association's 2008 accomplishments.

Wondering how many letters APHA members sent to Congress this past year? How many Sections and Special Primary Interest Groups APHA members can join? What topics APHA is blogging on?

The answers to those questions and more can be found in APHA's 2008 Annual Report on the Association, which can now be downloaded free from APHA's Web site.


The Association's Annual Report on fiscal year 2008 features updates on APHA priorities, projects and partnerships and captures some of APHA's major accomplishments during the past year.

"The Annual Report reflects the many contributions of time, talent and resources APHA members and partners have made and their dedication to helping advance the Association and improve the public's health," said David Fouse, APHA's director of communications. "It tells the story of APHA's work, recognizes our supporters and invites others to join us as a member, contributor or advocate."

Highlighted in the colorful, photo-filled report are activities in which the Association is involved locally, nationally and internationally, including projects to advance the public health profession. The Association's revenues and expenses for fiscal year 2008 are also included in the report.

The report also provides an overview of the many ways members and prospective members can become involved in the Association's work to improve access to care, eliminate health disparities in health and strengthen the public health infrastructure.

"It's been a year of great accomplishments for the Association and our members' efforts to advance the public health profession and the health of our communities," said APHA Executive Director Georges C. Benjamin, MD, FACP, FACEP (E). "The Annual Report brings those accomplishments into sharper focus."
