Collaboration Committee —COMMITTEES—

The Collaboration Committee works to strengthen and improve ASPHN’s strategic partnerships with other organizations.

The Collaboration Committee meets quarterly for one hour by conference call.  Members work on specific projects related to partnerships and partner support throughout the year.  We welcome any ASPHN member to join the Committee.  If you’re interested, please contact Shana Patterson.  The Collaboration Committee Chair is Becky Adams (AR).
