Welcome!

As an affiliate of the American Public Health Association, the OPHA provides a forum for the professional enrichment of more than 1,000 dedicated public health professionals.

As public health professionals, our OPHA president, Aundria Goree, is challenging all of us to lead with heart. Revive and strengthen collaborative partnerships. Make space at the table and amplify the voices of those who go unheard. As public health professionals, we must be innovative, sustain cultural change, be good stewards, and act as voices in our communities.

Have you selected your OPHA section or caucus yet?

All members are urged to select a section or caucus that fits their area of work or interest and to participate in the selected section and caucus activities.
