Sonja Freeman: 1st Vice President

I am a Supervising Public Health Advisor with School Health Vision Program. I have been working with the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene for over 25 years. I am proud to have been elected with this team of leaders because we are a group of people who are willing to work for the members and involve them in the decisions that matter.

It is so important that we stay informed and be able to disseminate information to the members, and also for members to have a voice in contract negotiations.
