Promoting better understanding of the concepts of community health with special emphasis upon prevention of illness and promotion of well being.

Thanks to all the members for your continued support of the association and your contribution to making the West Virginia Public Health Association what it is today.  As we stand united together, we support public health and public health workers.  Because of your dedication to public health, West Virginia is successfully waging a war against public health problems in every community in our state.

Our slogan for 2017 conference is “Public Health is Community Wealth” and our annual conference is scheduled for September 20 – 22 at Canaan Valley Resort.  Information will be posted on our website as it becomes available.  V.J., our new President Elect, is working on the program and speakers now so plan to attend.
