East Tennessee Faculty Named President of the Tennessee Public Health Association

Ms. Paula Masters, director of LIFEPATH, a statewide training center based at the East Tennessee State University College of Public Health, has been installed as president of the Tennessee Public Health Association (TPHA). In taking office at age 32, Ms. Masters is believed to be the youngest president in the history of the TPHA, and she holds the distinction of becoming the association president while also being a student. Ms. Masters has already earned her bachelor and master’s degrees from the East Tennessee State University College of Public Health, as well as her certification in health care management, and she is again a public health student, in pursuit of her DrPH in the department of community and behavioral health.
