Welcome to Alabama SSN

About the chapter

The Alabama SSN chapter launched in January of 2019. Alabama SSN focuses on connecting its members with policymakers, civic leaders, and journalist on issues related to health and education policy - issues that rank as the top two priorities for the state as well as areas of expertise for Alabama SSN members.
