Support: Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA); Food and Drug Administration (FDA); National Institutes of Health; George C. Benjamin, executive director of APHA.

The American Public Health Association is including these names, organizations and challenges the nation faces to be addressed by the new congress and administration.

Audience and Agenda: The APHA is the oldest and most diverse organization of public health professionals in the world to improve public health since 1872. Audience includes over 50,000 health professionals and other members who work to promote good health and prevent diseases. This non-profit website is paid for through it’s two flagship publications: the American Journal of Public Health and The Nation’s Health.

Usefulness: This web site was useful to me but somewhat irrelevant to my topic. The only thing it had in it was the health challenges the nation faces. The article did not go into great detail about providing health care to all Americans but did mention it briefly. Overall, I found it somewhat useful to my topic.
