Mission, Vision & Goals
The Maryland Public Health Association (MdPHA) is one of the oldest and most vibrant state affiliates of the American Public Health Association (APHA) and Maryland’s leading professional organization for those working in the field of public health. MdPHA remains dedicated to increasing health equity for Marylanders through advocacy and community collaborations.
We are committed to engaging the public health community in networking and educational events, advocacy activities and in emerging issues affecting the health of Marylanders. We provide our members with a bi-weekly, informative e-blast, hold our annual membership meeting in the fall and a tri-state public health conference with our affiliate colleagues in Pennsylvania and Delaware in the spring, actively participate in advocacy activities during Maryland’s legislative session (January-April), and offer opportunities to network throughout the year.
We champion health equity for Marylanders through advocacy and community collaborations.
Our vision is Healthy Marylanders living in healthy communities.
