Kentucky Public Health Association (KPHA) at WKU


Organization Purpose

The purpose of this organization is to promote and create awareness of public health issues both on campus and in our community. With the addition of new members we strive to be stronger advocates on the local and state level. Through community partnerships and campus activities members develop interpersonal and networking skills that will translate into their public health profession. Our organization also aims at providing platform for our members to participate in the community and help to make our society a better place to live.


Our vision is to see an overall improvement in the health on campus and in our community. We believe that as an organization, small steps that we take can make a great beginning for a healthier change in the community.


Our mission is to increase public health awareness through community education and championing legislation that improves the welfare of the citizens of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
