The Alberta Public Health Association is celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2018. In recognition of APHA’s important history, we are pleased to present some materials from a research project titled “Public Health Advocacy: Lessons from the History of the Alberta public Health Association, funded by a grant from the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation’s Heritage Preservation Partnership Program awarded to Lindsay McLaren, Kelsey Lucyk, and Frank Stahnisch.
This larger project started in 2015 and aimed to examine the history of APHA from its 1943 foundation to the present day. We invite you to review our Narrative History, scroll through the List of Past Presidents, and consider the impressive breadth of Historical APHA Resolutions.
We welcome feedback (including corrections) on these materials. Please send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
