ASPHN's Membership, Communication & Outreach Committee

ASPHN’s Membership, Communication & Outreach (MC&O) Committee provides guidance regarding communications to the association’s membership and its partners. Using our Communication Plan to guide and direct our efforts, we work to increase members’ skills, knowledge and involvement in ASPHN programs.

Our committee onboards new members and appointed members through orientation and mentoring opportunities, and organizes activities that educate and involve members in ASPHN’s programs, councils and other committees.

We also engage in outreach to identify and recruit new members and appointed members, and work to increase general awareness for ASPHN and the field of public health nutrition among other sectors including educators and students.

If you love being a member of ASPHN and would like to get others involved, we welcome you to join the MC&O Committee!
