Oklahoma Public Health Association


The Oklahoma Public Health Association posts information on upcoming OPHA events and information on public health related events of other agencies that we believe our members may be interested in attending. 

Each Year in conjunction with its Annual Membership Meeting, the Oklahoma Public Health Association holds a 1-2 day educational conference that focuses on providing new information and research on current public health issues and best practices.  This annual conference is open to all members and non-members who are interested in public health issues.
