Who we are
The District of Columbia Public Health Association (DCPHA) is dedicated to protecting personal, public, and environmental health in the Metropolitan Washington area.
The Association is committed to:
Connection: You will be connected to a larger group banded together to produce positive results for public health in our region.
Conferences: Conferences can provide quality education and networking for public health professionals, and you will receive a significant discount as a member. You will be able to contribute to the content, help plan the Conference or attend to enhance your professional development.
Public Policy/Advocacy: We plan to offer strong advocacy programs centered on assuring that public health voices are being heard. You can keep track of public health issues under consideration by the State Legislature. In the future we want to arrange Public Health contracts with a lobbyist to advocate for priority public health issues.
Free Informational Sessions: The association keeps members in touch with each other and current issues through the association’s web site and email updates of emerging issues relevant to public health. Stay informed about public health in your region and in a way that saves you time.Read more
