KPHA works for healthier people in Kansas.
We do this by focusing on 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.
KPHA brings together researchers, health service providers, administrators, teachers, and other health workers in a unique, multidisciplinary environment of professional exchange, study, and action.
The Kansas Public Health Association (KPHA) is the oldest and largest organization of public health professionals in the state, representing more than 800 members from over 50 occupations/organizations.
KPHA has influenced policies and set priorities in public health for Kansas since 1920. Throughout our history, we have been in the forefront of numerous efforts to prevent disease and promote health.
