Public Health is...

Connecting the voices of public health in Virginia

It has been said that you only get as much out of a membership as you put into it. We encourage you to volunteer with the Virginia Public Health Association, either on a standing committee, the Board of Directors, or for a task force. This is a great way for you to get more from your membership – meet more members to expand your professional network, hone your leadership skills, improve public health in Virginia - and help VPHA at the same time.


The mission of the Association is to improve the public’s health in Virginia by strengthening public health practice, promoting sound public health policy, improving health indicators in Virginia, and serving as a forum for all of the voices of public health in Virginia to be heard.


The vision of VPHA is to be the leading organization promoting the public’s health in Virginia.

VPHA Strategy Committees

The VPHA Board identified several strategies to achieve the vision that is articulated above.  Please contact us to join a committee - we welcome your skills and enthusiasm!

Professional Development and Collaboration Committee

This committee works to grow the funding and strengthen the infrastructure of VPHA; improve cooperation with the Virginia Department of Health; and promote and engage in new partnerships with our institutional members. This committee also oversees the planning and development of all VPHA professional development programs including the hosting of an annual career fair and conference. 

Communications and Membership Engagement Committee

This committee aims to create a strong social media presence for VPHA to provide information and promote events; provide current and useful web content; and create a database of all organizations involved in public health in Virginia. 

Policy and Advocacy Committee

The VPHA Policy Committee will work to inform our members, policy makers and the general public of the facts surrounding public health policy in a non-partisan way, working to assure that VPHA continues to connect all of the voices of public health in Virginia.
