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.

Civic Engagement and Voting
Please join the MPHA and MN Society for Public Health Education on September 22 at 5:30 - 7:00 pm for a special virtual meeting on civic engagement, voting and health.
Information will be shared on the connections between civic engagement, voting, health and health equity, as well as provide an opportunity to discuss our and our organization’s role in supporting voter registration and safe voting.
Established in 1907, MPHA is a volunteer driven organization 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.
A great way to get involved in MPHA is to join one of our formal committees or special interest groups!
You can choose to spend as little or as much of your time on participating in ongoing committee activities, attending meetings (conference call options available), or assisting with one-time projects and events.Join a Committee!
