MPHey! is an opportunity for public health professionals and students to build meaningful connections with others in the field, grow their skills and knowledge, and celebrate the expertise and work being done in our communities. Part networking, part peer to peer learning, each event will explore a different topic or area of public health. We’ll always have time for mingling and to also hear from someone with experience in that area. 


MPHey! is free for MPHA members and $5 for non-members. Snacks will be provided, drinks are on your own. Register ahead of time at https://mpha.net/


Please contact Ellen Saliares (eksaliares@gmail.com) and Claire Fleming (clairekathleenfleming@gmail.com) with questions. Have a suggestion for a speaker or topic? Let them know!


Events will be held approximately every other month at rotating locations.

Past Events:


December 5, 2018 - "Public Health Research and YOU!"

Pinwheel Arts and Movement Studio, Minneapolis

As public health professionals and students, research is integral to the work we do; whether we are running massive research projects or writing new grants for our programs, it is the foundation of our contributions to the field.  How do we work with research? What does it mean to us and how can it contribute to the public health change we are working towards? 

 

To explore these questions, network, and have a good time, join the Minnesota Public Health Association at "MPHey!: Public Health Research and YOU!" Our featured expert is Michael Oakes, Professor in the Division of Epidemiology and Community Health at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health and Director of the RWJF Interdisciplinary Research Leaders program.

September 12, 2018 - "Finding Your Place in Public Health"

Insight Brewing Company, Minneapolis

This exploration of how we figure out who we are in the field of public health, what our strengths are, and where we'll do our best work will feature Jodi Gertken, Director of Wellness at CentraCare Health and MPHA Governing Council Member. This event is a great opportunity for students and professionals alike to network, learn from someone who's had quite the professional journey, and reflect on where they are in their career and where their place is.
