Planning Healthy Iowa Communities Essay Contest
By: John Peterson, IPHA member & APA-Iowa Health Liaison
The American Planning Association Iowa Chapter, as a part of our collaborative work with the Iowa Public Health Association, is again sponsoring the Planning Healthy Iowa Communities Essay Contest.
This year’s theme is "Connecting Public Health with Community Planning." We are looking for ideas and success stories on how public health and planning collaborations can create positive outcomes for individuals and communities.
Two members of either IPHA or the Iowa Environmental Health Association will receive a $500 stipend to attend the APA Iowa annual conference this October 9-11 at the Graduate Hotel in Iowa City, Iowa.
Rules and guidelines are available on the IPHA website under Funding Opportunities in the Members Only section or contact John Peterson.
Please note, you must be an IPHA member to view the Funding Opportunities page, and to participate in the essay contest. If you are not yet a member, we invite you to join today and enjoy all the benefits of an IPHA membership!
