The Oklahoma Public Health Association believes that public health students and professionals across the state must unite across our various agencies, sectors, and institutions to create better population health outcomes for all Oklahomans. Therefore, we have chosen Building Common Ground in Public Health as our 2024 Conference theme! Please join us in September to build common ground among Oklahoma's public health community and learn from one another about ongoing research, strategies, and practices for public health improvement, protection, and service across the state.
