Student Council

The Student Council works to promote the Student Affiliate voice in Society matters. This is accomplished through two avenues. First, members of the Student Council are assigned to relevant SfHP Councils or Committees based on interests, representation, need, and relevance to student issues. Second, the Student Council promotes training and professional development, such as by by organizing programs at the Annual Meeting.
