As I begin my term as President of MPHA, I’d like to thank each one of you for being a member of this amazing organization. I’m really looking forward to this year!


First, I’d like to start with a big thank you to Aggie Leitheiser Cook who has done a tremendous job of leading MPHA this past year. Please join me in acknowledging her leadership and countless volunteer hours!


Second, please help me welcome many new members to our leadership:

  • Zelphia Peterson - Administrative Assistant
  • Becky Sechrist - President elect
  • Anna Ayers Looby - Governing Council member
  • Melanie Peterson-Hickey - co-chair of new Health Equity Committee

Please thank these people when you see them!


Looking ahead...please help us continue to build our membership - We have been steadily growing over the last many years, which is fabulous and uplifting!


I’d like to work on a few things this year:

  • Creating active regional groups across the state - Let me know if you have ideas!
  • Connecting with students in all MN schools that have public health programs
  • Continuing to diversify our leadership and membership to reflect the changing population of Minnesota
  • Connecting to organizations around the world. (Our partnership with Cuba is one example)

Lastly, please get involved in MPHA: volunteer--- it will improve your life! I look forward to seeing many of you soon. Please reach out to me: President@mpha.net
