A Message from 2015 NPHA President,
Marcia Ditmyer, PhD
Hello everyone! I am very excited to serve as the NPHA president for 2015. This coming on the heels of a very successful annual conference. There is a great need for an integrated and sustainable transdisciplinary research agenda for problem solving Nevada’s public health issues. The 2014 annual conference addressed approaches that can effectively deal with these issues. The time has come for health professionals to stop being more exclusive and begin being more inclusive with regard to collaborative approaches that can help move Nevada toward a more sustainable future. Nevada’s Public Health Association is a conduit for linking public health workers, academic professionals, healthcare providers, government officials, and the community together to accelerate and narrow the gap between knowledge and action. I would like to thank all those volunteers who have made NPHA what it is today and who will help create an environment that fosters collaborative practice. I look forward to working with you this upcoming year.
