Beyond Buzzwords: Action for Health Equity

On November 16, 2023, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., we will gather virtually for the 2023 MPHA Annual Conference and Meeting: Beyond Buzzwords: Action for Health Equity. As the theme suggests, we will dig deeply into what it takes to move from “health equity” as a virtue signal to the hard and necessary work of disruptive action for health justice.

This morning will be filled with an engaging agenda of speakers, panels, and interaction to explore some of the most pressing public health issues facing us today – and what we can do together to address them. We are delighted to announce that this year’s keynote speaker will be Dr. Bisola Ojikutu, MD, MPH, the Executive Director of the Boston Public Health Commission, who will delve into the importance of equity in data collection and will speak to public health’s need to do this work with a commitment to humility, building trust, reckoning with our past, and repairing harm.

At the conclusion of the conference, we will transition to the Annual Members Meeting where we will provide updates on MPHA of particular interest to our members as well as elect new Board Members and recognize those who are leaving the Board. All are invited.

Registration opens on October 5th. General registration tickets will be $20 and only $5 for students.

If you’d like to be a conference sponsor or buy a ticket for someone who cannot afford to attend, please contact Ana Hidalgo, MPHA Development Manager at or 857-302-7256.
