July 5, 2016

The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) announced today that Michael Fraser, PhD, CAE, will serve as the organization’s executive director beginning in mid- or late-August 2016.

Fraser has extensive experience leading public health and healthcare associations. Most recently he served as the executive vice president and CEO of the Pennsylvania Medical Society in Harrisburg, PA. During his tenure he worked with physician leaders to transform the Pennsylvania Medical Society into a dynamic, relevant and effective membership organization representing all of the state’s physicians.

“I am very excited by this opportunity to continue ASTHO’s legacy of leadership for state public health well into the future,” said Fraser. “Collectively, state and territorial health officials are a driving force in safeguarding and promoting the health of our nation. ASTHO members make decisions every day that impact the health and well-being of millions of people across the country. I look forward to supporting state and territorial health officials’ critical role in the states and territories and forging close partnerships with local, state, national, and federal stakeholders that value ASTHO members’ efforts to improve the health of our nation.”
