Legislative/Resolutions Committee

The APHA Legislative Committee is working to get the word out to membership that APHA is establishing a legislative “network tree” throughout the state. The network would allow APHA to readily reach out and contact our elected officials on local basis. Contacts would be initiated in order to educate/promote the Associations position on health related issues impacting or which stand to impact all Arkansans. The committee also hopes this effort will allow members to recognize others in their community that may be good and willing candidates (Home Town Health members; local advocates for health; county Judge and other elected officials; County Health Officer and other local physicians, etc.) who may also become Association members. Interested parties need to contact: Holli Sublette at
