IPHA AmeriCorps Program Celebrating AmeriCorps Week 2018

AmeriCorps Week is a time to salute AmeriCorps Members and Alums for their service, thank AmeriCorps community partners, and communicate AmeriCorps impact on communities and on the lives of those who serve. 

 

Join us March 11-17 as we highlight the current IPHA AmeriCorps Members and share how they 'Get Things Done' for public health in Illinois!
