June 2022 Inside the NHPHA

Inside NHPHA - A Monthly Column Written by NHPHA Leadership
Message from the NHPHA Executive Director

Dear Members:

We have reached the end of the legislative session in New Hampshire. The Association worked closely with members and partners to submit testimonies and took actions aligned with our legislative issues and priorities. Some wins include House Bill 1639, relative to the youth risk behavior survey in schools. On the other hand, House Bill 1606, which would make the state vaccine registry opt-in participation vs. opt-out, has passed the House and Senate and moved to the Governor's desk. The NHPHA urged members to contact the Governor to veto the bill. 

Now, the NHPHA's education programs are approved for nursing, CME, and the Certified Health Education Specialists (CHES) continuing education credits. I encourage you to register and earn your continuing education credits. Here is a summary of upcoming Webinars:

We recognize that without you to share knowledge, exchange information, and give back to the public health community, NHPHA cannot accomplish its work. For that reason, I give my sincere gratitude to you – the public health professionals, partners, and funders that support our work.
Thank you and have a lovely month!
