Hear from three of our members why they support MPHA!

Access & growth ~ community engagement ~ professional development


"Your money supports access. 

It supports community. And it supports the professional growth 

of people who are working in public health, making a difference." 

Ellen Saliares,

Membership Co-Chair

"From attending the annual conference

 to being a committee member,

community engagement,

community involvement,

volunteer opportunities

...and connecting with people overall on a public health standpoint!"

develop as a professional

and get ready for what I'm going to do next."
