    SCPHA is proud to announce that the Malcolm Dantzer and Public Health scholarship applications are open!  Visit our Awards page to download the application forms.

    SCPHA’s Management Support Section is sponsoring a chance for you to win an autographed football by the head football coaches from Clemson University and the University of South Carolina. That’s right – you can win a football signed by Dabo Sweeney of our own National Champions, the Clemson Tigers. You can also take a chance to get a football from Will Muschamp’s first year with the Gamecocks—before he takes USC to the championship!  Each signed football will also come in a decorative protective case.   

    Tickets are available for donations of $2 each or 3 for $5.  You will be able to circle your choice on each ticket.  

    Contact Gloria McCurry, Section Chair (mccurrga@gmail.com) with questions.

    Tickets are available from January 20 – May 25, 2017.  The drawing for both footballs will be held on Friday, May 25, 2017, at the SCPHA Annual Conference in North Charleston.  You do not need to be present to win.   

    All proceeds will support non-profit SCPHA’s Management Support Section’s community service projects in South Carolina—with your help in 2016 we were able to help support USO Project Exodus with snacks, annual school supplies for schools in need, Sistercare, Harvest Hope and Independence House.  We have numerous projects planned for 2017.  As always, thanks so much for your continued support of our section's projects!

    To our most esteemed membership:

    SCPHA would not be the Association it is without you and our other great members; THANK YOU!  On September 16, 2016, the Governing Council agreed to conduct a statewide fundraiser to build financial support for the Association.  Starting today through October 14, 2016, in light of the many community and citizen concerns about ZIKA, we will embark on a AVON Bug Guard Fundraiser where SCPHA will receive 40% of overall sales for the Bug Guard products (see attached product flier and order form). The price of the 4 ounce bottles is 2 for $15; a great deal for a great cause!

    "People can get a great product for half off, fight ZIKA, 

    and help the association at the same time!"

    Would you be willing to support the agency by selling the product to your family, friends, co-workers and other colleagues?  If you are able to sell, we have a few incentives for you.  The person who sells the most will receive a FREE 1-year membership or renewal and if you are a lifetime member, you can receive a 15% discount on one of SCPHA's signature events or training opportunities.  If interested, please send an email to Lillie Hall at HALLLM@dhec.sc.gov by September 30, 2016.  This will secure your participation and opportunity for your selling incentive

    All orders and money are due by October 14, 2016.  If you decide to sell, you can start immediately using the attached ZIKA Sales form.  IMPORTANT: Collect money with the orders and coordinate getting the money and orders to the next Governing Council (GC) meeting to be held on October 14, 2016.  If you are not planning to attend GC, please coordinate getting your money and orders to a GC member or someone who can get it to a GC member.  Thanking you in advance for supporting the association.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact Lillie Hall, HALLLM@dhec.sc.gov.  Thank you kindly!

    SCPHA Members, 

    The APHA Council of Affiliates has opened a call for abstracts for affiliates and students.  Please click the link below for more information.


    Affiliates:
    The CoA is inviting Affiliates to submit abstracts for posters which will demonstrate Affiliate best practices or promising programs for display at the 143nd APHA Annual Meeting & Expo in Chicago, Oct. 31-Nov. 4, 2015. This year the conference will explore the theme Health in All Policies. In keeping with this theme, proposals on programs to impact policy will be especially welcome. However, posters can be on any topic related to any work of the Affiliate. Affiliate posters accepted for exhibition at the Annual Meeting will be posted on the Affiliate Online Community so all affiliates will have the opportunity to learn from these model programs. 

    Students:
    The CoA is sponsoring two student poster sessions for undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled in public health-related coursework. Students are encouraged to submit proposals for public health-related work they have either recently completed or are in the process of completing for exhibition at the 2015 APHA Annual Meeting. Poster proposals can be on any public health-related topic and should represent a project sponsored by your Affiliate or any of your Affiliate members (individuals or groups). One poster session will be exclusively for abstracts written by undergraduate students to highlight their public health-related activities and research. The other session will be open to graduate students only (master and doctoral levels) interested in sharing their research and experience in public health. Student posters accepted for exhibition at the Annual Meeting will be judged by a sub-committee of the CoA, and top winners will be selected and awarded a cash prize of $200 and a certificate acknowledging their work. 

    The deadline for submitting poster abstracts for each category is July 31, 2015. Authors will be contacted in early September regarding poster abstract selection for exhibition. 

    Start your abstract submission here!
