Annual Meeting 2019

Join your public health colleagues and friends for the New Hampshire Public Health Association’s Annual Meeting on April 9 at 4 p.m. at the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center. This is a time to recharge through networking, viewing student posters, and recognizing your outstanding peers during the annual awards ceremony. Also, the NHPHA is hosting its first ever annual silent auction! Additionally, before the meeting at 2 p.m., public health students are invited to attend a Rising Stars workshop highlighting public health career paths in New Hampshire (see below for more details). 

NHPHA’s Annual Meeting and Silent Auction event will begin with a networking social from 4 to 5:30 p.m. During this time, light refreshments will be served. Attendees will have the opportunity to walk through the student poster gallery where more than 20 students are presenting interesting findings from their research projects or practicums. Exhibits at the Discovery Center will also be open.

The main structure of our meeting will be from 5:30 to 7 p.m., when NHPHA will conduct annual business, present awards, and announce the election of new officers and Board of Directors. This year, NHPHA is pleased to honor Audrey Knight, RN, MSN, as the 2019 Roger Fossum Lifetime Achievement Awardee. Audrey served in the role of Child Health Program Manager at the New Hampshire Division of Public Health Services for many years and made significant contributions to improving the health of children and families in New Hampshire. 

Rising Stars: Pre-Session and Student Poster Session

NHPHA is committed to growing its Rising Stars Initiative. To that end, the Rising Stars Pre-Session will be held on before the Annual Meeting at 2 p.m. We will hold a career panel to educate and excite students about public health career paths in New Hampshire. More details to follow! For students interested in submitting poster applications for the Annual Meeting, please fill out an abstract application for our Student Poster Session. It’s important to note:

  • All abstracts are accepted.
  • Students will be judged separately, by undergraduate and graduate level.
  • Prizes and awards are typically awarded during the Annual Meeting itself.
  • Students will receive the rubrics ahead of time.
  • Students must register for the Annual Meeting separately as part of the general registration.

There is no additional fee for students to attend this session.

Silent Auction: NHPHA Needs Donations

How can you help?

This year the NHPHA is hosting its first ever Annual Silent Auction. This auction will be conducted online leading up to the event, and then the culmination of the auction will be at the Annual Meeting, finishing as a live silent auction.

We are looking for item donations for this event. The auction will benefit NHPHA and subsequently the greater NH public health community. We attract members from all over the state, and your business name and item will be prominently displayed electronically and at the event. The item can be an experience, a basket, goods, services, etc.

Advertising

We will be advertising the event and silent auction items leading up to the meeting on Facebook and through the online platform, which is great exposure! The live event will mean further exposure, especially given the range of location of our members. This auction will benefit not only NHPHA, but also the greater public health community, and will serve as a great marketing opportunity for each business that donates.

For more information or to donate to the silent auction, please contact: Emily Goulet, NHPHA, 4 Park Street, Concord, NH 03301; egoulet@nhpha.org.
