As with our national organization, sections serve as the primary professional units of the Delaware Public Health Association and conduct activities that promote the mission and fulfill the goals of DPHA. Sections create a variety of opportunities for member involvement, thus making the DPHA experience richer for individuals who have the opportunity to attend and choose to interact with their primary sections.

At this time the DPHA has the following sections:

Aging and Public Health
Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs
Community Health Planning and Policy Development
Food and Nutrition
International Health
Maternal and Child Health
Mental Health
Public Health Education and Promotion

To be an active Section member, an individual must have a current membership in DPHA. Anyone who is a member of DPHA may become a member of a Section.

If you would like to see another section of the national APHA replicated within DPHA, please email the executive director.
