2022 ANNUAL REPORT

For APHL, 2022 heralded a return to many pre-pandemic operations. While our COVID-19 pandemic response continued, the association actively furthered the objectives laid out in its 2021-2023 Strategic Map.

We were able to return to in-person trainings and conferences, while adapting our offerings for those who were still unable to travel. Our Global Health team returned to travelling the globe to support the association’s international operations. We launched a revamped laboratory directors training and “super-sized” fellowship program, and our tireless staff—now operating on a “remote friendly” basis—were able to gather for APHL Week, a newly created week of collaboration, celebration and professional development that will happen annually.

We remain grateful for the continuing support of our members and federal partners—including but not limited to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the US Food and Drug Administration, the Health Resources and Services Administration and the US Environmental Protection Agency—and all our public and private collaborators, both old and new.
