Advocacy Committee

The purpose of the Advocacy Committee is to pursue FPHA’s mission – “FPHA Serves Florida’s Public Health Professionals and Students through Advocacy, Professional Development, and Networking to Improve Florida’s Health.” The Advocacy Committee focuses on FPHA's mission primarily through Advocacy projects.

Now is an exciting time to join the Advocacy Committee! As the new fiscal year begins, it has committed to staying focused on its goals. All FPHA members are welcome to provide input on monthly phone calls to help meet the needs of FPHA's members. One of our main goals for the year is starting a Public Health Movement

The Advocacy Committee has two main goals for the 2018-2019 fiscal year. The first is to start a Public Health Movement, educating the public about the public health workforce. The second goal coincides with the first: advocating for the Public Health Workforce in hopes of creating awareness of public health workers including Department of Health, Researchers, Educators, Registered Dietitians, and more. This is an exciting time for the Advocacy Committee: all are welcome to join the group, participate in phone calls, and be a part of the Public Health Movement.
