MPHA’s 18th Awards Breakfast
MPHA is excited to award the remarkable public health heroes we will be honoring at our Annual Awards Breakfast. These individuals have demonstrated unwavering commitment to health equity and racial justice, and they inspire us to deepen our own work.
At this time, we have decided to postpone the event due to our need to physically distance. This does not mean that we will lose the opportunity to recognize these health equity champions. When we are able to gather, we will do so with a sense of gratitude and joy. We hope that you will be able to join us when the new date is set.
