Promoting & Improving Population Health in Kansas


KPHA has been influencing policies and setting priorities in public health for Kansas since 1920.

Throughout our history, we have been at the forefront of numerous efforts to prevent disease and promote health.

The Kansas Public Health Association (KPHA) is the oldest and largest organization of public health professionals in the state, representing more than 250 members from over 20 occupations and organizations.

KPHA brings together researchers, health service providers, administrators, teachers, and other health workers in a unique, multidisciplinary environment of professional exchange, study, and action.

KPHA is concerned with a broad set of issues affecting personal and environmental health, including federal and state funding for health programs, pollution control, programs and policies related to chronic and infectious diseases, a smoke-free society, and professional education in public health.
