FPHA North Florida Regional Meeting   

Primary care clinicians and public health professionals are all intensely committed to achieving optimal and equitable health for all Floridians.  Each brings unique perspectives, strengths, and skills, and together they become even more powerful when they join forces to improve the health of individuals and their communities.  But how do we make that happen?  The Northwest Florida regional meeting of the Florida Public Health Association will be held September 16, 2016 at the FSU College of Medicine and will be co-sponsored by the Florida Association of Community Health Centers, Florida Department of Health, FSU College of Nursing and FSU Public Health Program. The theme of the conference is Strengthening Primary Care and Public Health Collaboration for a Healthier Florida and will focus on the potential for public health and primary care to work together to improve the health of diverse communities across Florida.  The opening plenary session will be on Joining Forces to Achieve Health Equity, followed by plenary sessions and break-out groups with discussions and best practice examples of integrating healthcare and public health toward the ultimate goal of the best possible health outcomes for all.  Breakout sessions will focus on specific application to maternal-child health, infectious disease, mental/behavioral health and chronic disease.  Registration is now open. Click on the Meeting link at the top of this page.

Rick France, FPHA President 2016-2017

President's Corner
Greetings from the FPHA. I’m honored to be President for a great upcoming year.

A lot of excitement and energy was generated at the 2016 Annual Education Conference along with a host of ideas. I believe this will be the Year of Membership as we work to maintain, recruit, and bring back members to keep us going strong.

Currently, there has been renewed participation in the FPHA Interest groups with much activity buzzing around with the Health Equity and Student sections (click on the link at the top of the page above to see the groups). At the conference there was much discussion on putting more focus on small projects and much less on the traditional conference calls. For those who are interested, and I hope it is quite a few, there is plenty of opportunity for those wanting to take on leadership responsibilities (chair a group) or if you would like to just network with other members.

And speaking of networking among members, this year we will be working to arrange for local get-togethers as well as regional conferences. Networking is a big part of FPHA in addition to advocacy and the annual education conference. Informal networking is something we can all do at the local level.

We still will have one big challenge for the year. Sandy Magyar, Executive Director, and Marsha Zupan, AEC Registration Coordinator, will be leaving us in January after fourteen years and eleven years in these positions, respectively. These are some big shoes to fill. Our thanks and best wishes for all they have done cannot be expressed enough.

It’s going to be a sensational year. Come join us!
