Public Health Authority
Background As part of a grant between the American Public Health Association and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to mobilize the public health community to address these challenges to public health authority, APHA will work in three main areas.
To accomplish this goal, we are working with partners to focus on six key states to engage more carefully in this work. They are: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Montana, Pennsylvania, and Oklahoma.
