FAPHN is truly composed of those who care about people. FAPHN members are professionals, who work for public entities rather than for-profit ones. While the members could individually make more money in the private sector, they sacrifice monetary gain for the honor of providing free service to those in need. FAPHN very much needs contributions to further its goals of helping others. There are few other organizations that do so much with so few financial assets. My then-97-year-old mother (who since passed away) was excited to be a speaker at their annual meeting, where she related her experiences working in public health in the early days. Help FAPHN, if you can.
