Policy Council

MPHA Policy Council, October 2018

Purpose 

MPHA’s Policy Council is based in the belief that to select meaningful priorities, we need input from local, regional, and statewide leaders, and that communities of color and low-income communities most impacted by health inequities should be represented in MPHA’s decision-making by leaders of community-based organizations. The Council is based in principles developed during MPHA’s six-year Act FRESH Campaign. That campaign, which focused specifically on healthy eating and active living, had a similar leadership structure. In launching this new Policy Council, MPHA is “mainstreaming” these principles into our entire organization, charging the Council with recommending positions on all the issues that are important to MPHA.
