Long-time board member, Sarah Samuels, left an indelible mark on California Food Policy Advocates (CFPA). Sarah was a leader in conducting and applying research to shape sound nutrition policies. She was also a supportive mentor of new public health professionals. To honor these contributions and to continue her work, CFPA has established the Sarah Samuels Public Health Fellowship.
