Bruce Jennings co-authored a new code of public health ethics for the APHA

November 13, 2019

In 2015 APHA convened a task force charged with revising, expanding and updating the code of public health ethics that had been adopted and promulgated in 2002. This year the APHA approved a new “Public Health Code of Ethics,” and it was released at the association’s annual meeting held in Philadelphia in early November. I was the co-chair of that task force and served as one of the principal drafters of the text of the new code.
