ASPHN has become the 'go to' voice of public health nutrition because it recognizes and corrals all of our individual strengths into a common resource.
I have been an ASPHN Expanded Member for less than a year, but I am already benefitting professionally.
One of the benefits I have received in being an ASPHN member is getting to know other public health nutritionists and learning how they handle challenging situations.
I love the leadership trainings that are available to us. These trainings provide an opportunity for us to learn more about up-and-coming issues and trends in our fast-changing field.
