WSHA and WSALPHO have a common goal toward improving the health of Washington state communities. In 2014, the two organizations and several others joined together to put on a conference about population health. We look forward to working more with the public health officers to improve our state’s health through both public and clinical health channels.
Their mission (from www.wsalpho.org/)
The Mission of WSALPHO is to bring together the leadership of local public health departments and districts to encourage improvement in the quality, capacity, and leadership of local public health jurisdictions (LHJ) to provide a more effective, efficient and consistency public health infrastructure throughout the state. Unlike the Washington State Public Health Association, WSALPHO is not an advocacy organization.
