APHA Liaison – This position is ideal if you are already a member of APHA and involved/interested in the Food and Nutrition Section. Past liaisons participated in online meetings and volunteered to serve on conference presentation reviews and conference planning, as well as representing ASPHN during the APHA Annual Conference.
NSRI Liaison – This position is a perfect fit if you are from one of the 8 states working on the Sodium Reduction in Communities Grants (SRCG).
