A Message from the President:

Welcome to our website, and thank you for your interest in the New York State Public Health Association!

On July 1st we cordially welcomed four new Directors to our Board: Kathy Alexis, Terri Jackson, Martha Ryan and Kristina Wieneke. Our team members at NYSPHA have very diverse backgrounds in public health from all parts of New York State, and so if you haven't had the chance I'll encourage you to take a brief moment to meet all of our officers, directors and staff.

Planning is currently underway for our 68th Annual Meeting and Conference -- in 2018 we'll be hosting our event at the Gideon Putnam Resort in Saratoga Springs, so please mark your calendar for our conference on April 18-20 and be on the lookout for additional details as information unfolds.

Between now and our Annual Meeting in the spring, we'll continue to host our "2017 Best Practices and Innovations" webinar series.  Be sure to bookmark the events page on our website where you can register for any of our webinars or other events at any time.

Lastly if you're not yet a member of NYSPHA, please do consider joining us.  Explore the possibility of joining public health professionals and advocates from across New York State as we band together in a most transformative time to strengthen our field.

To your good health, 

Susan M. Franko, PhD, RRT

NYSPHA President

The New York State Public Health Association is an affiliated association of the American Public Health Association (APHA). Since 1918, we have collaborated with APHA to grow stronger as organizations, to share expertise, influence, and resources, and to advocate for common priorities at the local, state, and federal levels.

APHA is the national voice of public health and champions the health of all people and all communities. They strengthen the profession of public health; share the latest research and information, promote best practices and advocate for public health issues and policies grounded in research. APHA is the only organization that combines a 140-plus year perspective, the ability to influence federal policy to improve the public’s health and a member community from all public health disciplines and over 40 countries.

APHA publishes the American Journal of Public Health and The Nation’s Health, convenes an Annual Meeting and Exposition where thousands of participants share the latest public health research and leads public awareness campaigns such as Get Ready and National Public Health Week. Learn more at
