APHA Accepting Applications for the Student Champions for Climate Justice Award

Many students have been outspoken in demanding climate justice, and the American Public Health Association’s Center for Climate, Health and Equity seeks to integrate these efforts into a national movement advancing policies that address the health equity impacts of climate change. The Center is offering a new opportunity for students and student groups to foster dialogue and spur action about these issues on campus.  The Center will select up to five college or university students or student groups to create a Campus Experience during National Public Health Week (April 6-12, 2020).  For more details on this award, click the link below.

A Message from Student Representative: Tyler Woolsey

APA Florida maintains a strong presence statewide with a diverse community of students representing the currently accredited programs and supporting students at universities around the state in a variety of related fields. Our student planners recognize a need for collaboration across disciplines, between the public and private sector, and through municipal boundaries. As such, we seek to build lasting connections among students interested in all aspects of planning. We welcome you to embrace the countless benefits of free student membership with APA Florida and connect with us on the path to building a better tomorrow, today!

The APA Florida chapter prides itself on the connections it facilitates among professionals and students across all 12 sections in the state. Students have the opportunity to benefit from this commitment through frequent networking events, mentorship programs, and a wealth of planning knowledge and resources made available online and through various seminars, lunch-and-learns, and other events hosted by the sections throughout the year. Through early connections and a strong knowledge base, students contribute to this commitment as future professionals in a constantly evolving field. The student section of the APA Florida site will act as a virtual destination to begin making connections with fellow planners and consolidate information on events, programs, and opportunities for students to get engaged.
