Minnesota Public Health Association
Since 1907, MPHA has been dedicated to creating a healthier Minnesota through effective public health practice and engaged citizens.
The Health Equity Committee facilitates MPHA’s role in advancing health equity in Minnesota by convening public health professionals to learn about equity efforts, share promising practices, and document as appropriate; with the Policy Committee, to monitor legislative activity and offer policy analysis related to equity and health; and to connect with other APHA affiliates to learn and share health equity efforts.
The Health Equity Committee currently meets every 3rd Thursday from 5:30-7:30PM CT. Click here to register for the next meeting.

We look forward to your involvement with the committee!
