Our Work

For Science

We convene the pre-eminent meeting of public health professionals each year to discuss the latest research and share new ideas and best practices.

We bring all disciplines of public health together so they can work together on issues cutting across many areas of public health.

We publish a research journal and a monthly newspaper. We issue reports and hold meetings, webinars and social media gatherings throughout the year.

For Action

We provide a collective voice to advocate at the federal level for laws and regulations that will advance the public’s health.

We advocate for funding for critical public health programs from maternal and child health to bioterrorism preparedness to prevention of heart disease, diabetes and injuries.

We provide educational opportunities so professionals can maintain their certifications and expand their areas of expertise.

For Health

We believe in health equity and access to care for everyone in every community.

We promote “health in all policies” by building partnerships, coalitions and connections with people outside the public health community such as community planners, transportation, K-12 education and other areas that can have a profound impact on public health.

We champion prevention as both an effective and cost-efficient path to improved health and wellness.
