The Minnesota Public Health Association Annual Conference and Meeting will be held May 4-5, 2020 at Eagan Community Center in Eagan, MN with the theme: “The Power of Many: Building a Healthier Future Together for All”.


Addressing today’s public health challenges requires innovation and collaboration. The Minnesota Public Health Association’s 2020 Annual Conference will feature Minnesota-based programs and initiatives founded on public health partnerships across the lifespan of the people they serve. Learn what can be achieved through bold, innovative approaches and thoughtful, courageous collaborations.


Presentations will come from a variety of public health areas, including new approaches to concerns around mental health, vaping, and social determinants of health in communities. Other topics may include but are not limited to environmental health and climate change, oral health, child and maternal health, chronic disease and aging, injury and violence prevention, and other timely topics.

The MPHA annual meeting gathers public health professionals at every level from students to mid-career professionals to retired experts from around the state to exchange information and create a healthier Minnesota through effective public health practice and engaged citizens. Dedicated public health professionals who want to connect with peers, pick up new ideas and gain skills to bring back to their workplace or community are encouraged to attend. Application will be made for public health nursing, CHES/MCHES/CPH continuing education credits.
