Students assemble for tomorrow's public health

APHA's 140th Annual Meeting isn't just for public health leaders. It's about the next generation — it's about becoming public health leaders too.

Public health students ran the show Saturday during the National Student Meeting, sponsored by the APHA Student Assembly — "the nation's largest student-led organization" working together on public health and student-related issues. The student meeting brought together professionals and students to discuss health issues, wellness, prevention and professional development.

Above, students shared with us their paths to the APHA Annual Meeting and what sparked their interest in the public health field.
