Call for Resolutions and Policy Statements
An important part of the work of NDPHA is adopting positions on various public health issues. Advocacy is an essential part of public health as it helps to shape health policy and impacts the people we serve through awareness of important public health issues. The NDPHA Policy and Advocacy Committee would like to hear from the membership about public health policy, system or environmental change that is needed to improve public health. We would be happy to help you shape your idea into a resolution for presentation at the annual meeting on May 16, 2016 in Grand Forks.
Please submit your resolutions to Debbie Swanson, Policy and Advocacy Committee chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org, by April 7, 2016. Members of the committee are: Keith Bennett, Holly Brekhus, Julie Ferry, Nathan Fix and Karen Volk. Copies of current resolutions can be found at www.ndpha.org.
