Public Health Association of Seventh-Day Adventists (PHASDA)

Organized in 1966, incorporation completed in 1967, PHASDA served as a professional association made up of health professionals and other members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church interested in promoting the health program of the church. An affiliate of the American Public Health Association, PHASDA conducted its annual meeting in conjunction with this association’s annual convention. Organized into sections and chapters, PHASDA sought to provide strong leadership for its members. PHASDA no longer functions. The annual Healthy People Convention sponsored by the Loma Linda University School of Public Health provides continuing education credit for professionals and enrichment for all concerned with health issues.
