We are pleased to share some exciting news. The New York State Public Health Association (NYSPHA) and the Public Health Association of New York City (PHANYC) will soon officially operate as one under NYSPHA!

Every state in the U.S. has a state affiliate of the American Public Health Association (APHA), with the exception of California and New York, which each operated two separate affiliates. NYSPHA will be the only APHA state affiliate in New York, serving all parts of the State, including the New York City area.

As a result of combining NYSPHA and PHANYC, we hope to expand our advocacy, networking, continuing education and professional development efforts.  Operating as one state public health association means an increase in the potential for membership growth, a strong and cohesive presence throughout New York State, and an overall increase in our merged resources to have a greater impact on protecting and promoting good health for all of the communities we serve.

We are excited about this new endeavor and appreciate your continued support! We’re confident that a growing and more expansive NYSPHA will allow us to continue to assert our leadership together in the field of public health.

To your good health,

New York State Public Health Association

Public Health Association of New York City
