A Rich History, A Vibrant Future
In 1892, physicians from across Iowa convened the first meeting of IPHA and officially organized in 1925.
For 90 years, IPHA has been a trusted community of public health professionals and the collective voice for the health of Iowans. IPHA champions health by convening and connecting individuals and organizations as a credible, respected advocate for public health in Iowa and nationally.
IPHA has evolved to stay relevant, deepening and broadening our impact in changing times. Today, IPHA continues to be at the table for important public health discussions and decisions affecting Iowans.
IPHA stands ready to nimbly respond to emerging public health threats and engage diverse stakeholders to create shared solutions for the health of Iowans.
APHA champions the health of all people and all communities. APHA is the the only organization that influences federal policy, has a 140-plus year perspective and brings together members from all fields of public health.
Join and invest in IPHA to advance community-wide approaches that assure the conditions in which all Iowans can be healthy.
