Seven Benefits of Membership in Public Health Associations
In this episode I discuss some of the benefits of membership in public health associations. Although there are many important reasons for you to become involved in public health associations, I focus on seven benefits in this episode. It is important that you not only become a member, but that you also become actively involved. Public health associations can provide you with the opportunity for professional development, as well as chances for continuing education, research, and networking.
Some of the benefits that I discuss in this episode include:
Access to membership is available on many levels from student to professional.
Learn about specialization in an area of interest.
Receive current and up to date information on what’s new in your area of interest.
Tap into abundant job resources and volunteer resources.
There are many continuing education ventures for professionals.
Multiple levels of networking prospects exist, virtually and face to face.
Annual meetings provide multiple opportunities to engage with your peers.
