NPHW is an opportunity for health professionals to engage with individuals and communities and help them navigate the changing world of public health.


This year, HPHA will celebrate Hawaii's ranking as the healthiest state for the fourth consecutive year by "United Health Foundation." With still much work to be done, HPHA will explore the theme “Healthiest Nation 2030 - Hawaii: The Healthiest State?” with presenters discussing achievements and challenges around this topic.


New this year – HPHA’s UH and HPU students are planning networking activities to increase the engagement between working public health professionals and students eager to enter the field.


The Healthy Happy Hour will include light pupus and special “mocktails” to round out the evening.


Don’t miss this once a year event to celebrate public health in Hawaii, re-connect with colleagues and meet the new public health professionals of the future!
