Strengthening public health through partnerships, policies and professional development.
The Indiana Public Health Association was incorporated in 1964 to unify efforts for advancing public health in the state of Indiana. Until 1997, the organization was entirely volunteer run, with board members and committees doing all of the planning and carrying out functions including annual conferences. In 1999, IPHA was granted by the IRS a change in not-for-profit designation, becoming a 501(c)(3) organization that conducts activities which are essentially educational and for public benefit.
Since the beginning of the 21st century, IPHA has continued to grow as an effective and recognized voice for public health in Indiana. Public and environmental health professionals, educators and students across the state join IPHA to be part of its mission of professional development, partnership formation and advocacy, and to enjoy the benefits of networking and friendship with public health colleagues.
