As part of our 30th year, the AHPA Board is delighted to host a presentation at the Annual General Meeting by inaugural founding National AHPA President and Life Member, Trevor Shilton. Trevor will reflect on the past three decades of health promotion and consider what the future might hold for our profession and discipline.
