Become a Member

Thank You for your interest in the APHA Student Assembly (APHA-SA), the nation's largest student-led organization dedicated to supporting students, the next generation of public health professionals. APHA-SA membership entitles you to take advantage of all our great programs and initiatives and adds value to your APHA student membership*. As a APHA-SA member, we encourage you to get involved and help us prepare students for an exciting career in public health. Please choose the membership type most appropriate for you below.

All APHA student members are automatically APHA-SA members.

Not interested in becoming an APHA member right now, but want to be a APHA-SA member only? That's OK! Although we encourage you take advantage of all APHA's great services and benefits by becoming a member, individual memberships to APHA-SA may be purchased as well. APHA-SA memberships of this type do not include APHA membership benefits (e.g., subscriptions to the Nation's Health and American Journal of Public Health) or meeting discounts, etc.
