We offer meaningful and relevant professional development opportunities for public health professionals and all those interested in public health in Arizona.
AzPHA Professional Development Webinars
AzPHA Member Book Club
We all read to keep up on our profession, some literature is required reading, other is discretionary. As a public health profession, it is important to keep certain topics front and center to make sure we are as informed as possible before the public debate or next health crises occurs.
The extent to which we stay up to date on issues through publications and books, complements the information already supplied through employer channels and regulatory/accrediting bodies.
Our virtual club will select an article or book to read together and discuss key subjects and themes in the content, and potential learnings upon completion.
We have created a discussion board within Basecamp for members to post comments virtually, moderated by the Director of Professional Development (Eric Tomlon). The goal will be to complete either one book per quarter, or one journal article per month pending consensus from the Club.
If you’re interested in this new offering, please Email Eric Tomlon, Director Professional Development AZPHA firstname.lastname@example.org and he’ll get you set up on that Basecamp.
Mentoring relationships are intended to help students make the transition from an academic to a professional environment and to offer an opportunity for professional development, networking, and an exchange of ideas between experienced professionals and the next generation of public health leaders.
