Professional Affairs


Our election process has come to an end, and we are happy to inform that Margaret Miller was elected the new Professional Affairs Secretary of WPHNA! This is effective immediately.

We received many comments from voting members, indicating that both candidates were highly qualified for the position and should be engaged, irrespective of who is elected. We have therefore invited Rubina Hakeem to be part of the Professional Affairs portfolio and take an active role to support the development of the public health nutrition workforce worldwide. Both Margaret and Rubina will be an asset to the Association, and we are happy to have them on board!Read More

Elections 2014 Call for candidates: Deadline Extended to 7 July

The deadline to submit applications for the Association’s Executive Committee (EC) has now been extended to 7 July at 23:59 GMT.

The two positions are President, after the completion of the term of office of Barrie Margetts, and Professional Affairs Secretary, after the retirement from office of Roger Hughes. Considering the low number of applications received, and to give Association members more opportunity to consider taking an active role in the Association, the EC decided to extend the deadline.Read More
