Outreach opportunity for FPHA at USF COPH
On January 27, 2015, Linda Lacomb-Williams and Jennifer Waskovich hosted an educational display table at the USF College of Public Health.  The display contained information about the Florida Public Health Association and what it can offer to students pursuing a career in public health.  A number of students stopped by the table asking about the organization.  Linda and Jennifer discussed with them the opportunities for scholarships, networking, and advocacy.  The Annual Education Conference was mentioned as a way for students to gain knowledge, meet public health professionals from around the state and as an opportunity to display their research findings during the poster session.  Educational brochures, membership forms, past FPHA newsletters, and career path opportunities were all on display.  Interested students were also provided with a USB flash drive containing the FPHA strategic plan and membership information along with a 125 Years in Public Health pin.  This was a great opportunity to collaborate with the college and promote the wonderful benefits of our organization. 

Congratulations to Pinellas County on receiving grant funds to improve community health outcomes!
