Hi Everyone! We wanted to take a minute to introduce ourselves and the BRAND NEW Health Promotion Section! You spoke up and we listened! This section is open to any WPHA member who works in health promotion, is passionate about health promotion or maybe doesn’t know much about health promotion and wants to know more-- all are welcome here! We plan to regularly engage with section members-- starting with a brief survey to figure out what you want from us and how best we can meet your needs.

Please take the five question survey by March 22 to help our plans:

In addition, we'll be posting on our WPHA Group page, so feel free to check back or "Subscribe" to the blog to learn more!

Meet your co-chairs!
