2022 Allied Health Professions Week Competition

Background

In celebration of Allied Health Professions Week, the National Society of Allied Health (NSAH) is hosting its annual student competition among its constituent organizations. The purpose of the competition is to promote allied health science and the allied health professions in the community at large.

Facts

  • Allied health professionals deliver services involving the identification, evaluation and prevention of diseases and disorders, dietary and nutrition services, rehabilitation, and health systems management.
  • When combined, allied health professions comprise nearly 60 percent of the health professions workforce.
  • Allied Health Professions week is celebrated annually during the first full week of November. The Board of Directors has decided the competition will include those activities that occurred throughout the fall of 2021 through January 31, 2022.
