Minnesota Public Health Association

Since 1907, MPHA has been dedicated to creating a healthier Minnesota through effective public health practice and engaged citizens. 

MPHA invites anyone interested in public health to join our non-profit organization. Professionals from any background, and at any stage of their career, are welcome! Public health encompasses an extremely broad range of disciplines and the diversity of our members strengthens the organization.

Intersectionality Conversations

Oct. 26, 2021 3:00 PM - 3:30 PM CT

Part of the work of becoming an anti-racist organization is having intentional, intersectional conversations about our work in public health. Each month, we will send materials ahead of the meeting to facilitate the discussion.

About MPHA

Established in 1907, MPHA is a volunteer driven representing a broad spectrum of community and health professionals on behalf of the public. It is an organization where public health workers from multiple disciplines and sectors come together around shared values and goals. We engage and develop our members to mobilize the community to protect and improve the public’s health.
