OPHA Special Interest Sections

Special Interest Sections, generally referred to simply as “sections”, allow OPHA members with shared interests to come together to organize and advocate, and encourage personal and professional growth. Sections provide OPHA with depth and expertise on a variety of issues and disciplines.

Members are encouraged to join a special interest section when they complete their member application (included with membership dues). 

OPHA members who wish to focus on a particular issue or area within public health may form a special interest section. New sections form as interests and issues evolve in the field.

Existing Special Interest Sections:

Addiction Prevention
