    IPHA 3rd Thursday Lunch & Learns (virtual)

    Spend your lunch hour with IPHA on the 3rd Thursday of each month to learn what the public health community is up to across the state. The Lunch & Learns are virtual, so no need to schedule travel time. Each month we'll have a different guest share what is working in her/his community, challenges they may be facing, and how they are engaging other sectors. We'll also open the mic to all attendees to ask questions and share their ideas.

    September - What's new with IPHA?

    Abby Lee & Juan Gudino, two UI students, will interview Lina Tucker Reinders, IPHA Executive Director, and then Lina will get a chance to ask them how IPHA can better support students and young professionals.
