Community Health Program Coordinators

Unions and Associations

Community health program coordinators are not members of unions, but they can join professional associations at the local, state, and national levels that provide publications, career information, networking opportunities, continuing education in-person classes and webinars, conferences, and other resources. One major organization is the American Public Health Association—which was founded in 1872 and has members in more than 40 countries. It has a Health Administration Member Section; publishes the American Journal of Public Health and The Nation’s Health newspaper; hosts an Annual Meeting and Expo (where attendees can network and participate in professional development classes and seminars); and offers online continuing education opportunities, among other resources. Other useful organizations include the National Association of Community Health Workers, Association for Community Health Improvement (an affiliate of the American Hospital Association), National Association of Community Health Centers, and the Society for Public Health Education.
