I love so many things about ASPHN! But three that come to mind are (1) meeting other passionate public health nutrition professionals that I can learn from, (2) gaining access to incredibly useful and relevant resources that help me serve my community and state in a more efficient and effective capacity, and (3) being part of a professional organization that is managed by highly organized and personable nutrition professionals.
I am always inspired by hearing what people from different states are doing, and what the priority issues are in their state. It helps to paint a picture of what cutting edge practice looks like, and helps me determine how best to train my graduate students so that they will have the necessary skills when they complete their MPH and RD.
Since my role as the Nutrition Services Coordinator for my state’s WIC program is 100% WIC, the MCH Nutrition Council has been a good opportunity to learn about the other MCH programs out there and determine ways to collaborate and reduce barriers for the mutual clientele we serve.
ASPHN is so beneficial for my work as a public health nutritionist! The presentations at the annual meeting and webinars during the year are always on point for the work I do. Getting involved in ASPHN Councils, Committees and Board have provided great opportunities to network with wonderful colleagues from around the country. I'm a better professional for joining ASPHN!
I love meeting colleagues from around the country with similar work experience and passion for public health nutrition. I also truly appreciate the professional development and leadership opportunities.
